How Can I Put Ear Medication Drops When Fluid is Trapped in both ears??

I have had for the last 5 months, fluid leaking from ear, A thick yellow sometimes clear puss like fluid, Cause? Infection, I was prescribed ciprodex a week ago, Im suppose to take it for 14 days and then get surgery to patch a hole in my left ear.

The fluid is still leaking, all the time, How can the medication work if my ears wont stay dry? The fluid is probably blocking the medication from actually working.

Please help me, Im afraid there is not much for me to do left, i took amoxicillin pills, dont work!

Please please please..

anybody ever have this? how did u get rid of it...

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Good to see you are improving. Try to keep the ear dry. To ease ear pain, apply a warm washcloth or a heating pad set on low. Follow the instructions for ear drops and complete your antibiotic course. You can use OTC Acetaminophen also for relief from pain. And Good Luck with your surgery.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

I did a 2 week full course of Ciprodex 4 drops 4 times a day in both ears, I went through 2 bottles during this time, The Fluid leaking appears to have stopped, Going to the Ent soon to check ears and get cleared for surgery to patch the hole in my ear, It feels mighty good to have this fluid out of my ears, But I still have a fullness in my ear, However thats a whole new problem, Thank you for your response.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

You can apply the ear drops and keep it for 2-3mins, this should be sufficient for it to act. Now, repeat it for the other side. You can try frequent application of the drops like every 2 hrly, this will help the medication to act better.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
