Homeopathic Remedies for Ear Discharge or Otorrhea

Ear Discharge Treatment

Otorrhea or ear discharge is the secretion of tissue fluid or bloody or purulent discharge from the ear.  Ear discharge should never be ignored especially for cases where secretion of blood is constant, ear discharges has stains of blood or the fluid is thin, clear or sticky as these may actually be cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

The different types of ear discharge is an indication of different ear problems.  If the ear discharge is foul smelling then it is often showing an indication of cholesteatoma or infection.  A sign of ear infection will be indicated by brown or yellow fluid while persistent infections will be indicated by sticky and thick ear discharge containing blood stains.  Ear discharge in acute infections are usually white.  Bloody ear discharge especially with signs of fresh blood often is an indication of ruptured microvessels of the inner or middle ear or sometimes an indication of serious bleeding in the cranial cavity.  A water or clear ear discharge is often a sign of tissue swelling or as the more serious indication of cerebrospinal fluid which is actually the fluid surrounding the brain.
