watery fluid dripping from ear

Hi there

Im getting lots of watery discharge coming out of my ear constantly, i will dry it and withthin a minute it will be dripping again, its been like this for a week now.

Initially a couple weeks i got hit on my ear which effected my hearing really badly, the next day it was still deaf so i went to A&E n they told me it was just blocked with wax from the hit.

I then used ear drops to remove the wax and the pain was imense i coulda passed out!! a few days go by and it was hurting n throbbing with loads of watery discharge so i went to the docs.

the doc took 1 look and told me it was a perferated eardrum and infected n gave me antibiotics, but a week later and ive still got loads of water dripping from my ear and wet patches all over my pillow in the morning and constant headches/neck and ear aches.

anything i need to worry about?

Re: watery fluid dripping from ear

That's a bit scary to me. I think I would schedule an appt ASAP to see an Ear Nose and Throat specialist. All that fluid has to be coming from somewhere and since you had an injury I'm wondering if there is some damage inside your ear. I'm not saying this to try and frighten you but it could be cerebrospinal fluid. If the injury you had damaged the internal structure of your ear or sinuses, it can allow the fluid to leak and come out thru your ear or nose. If so, this is treatable but the sooner the better.
