Brown discharge from ear

Common Questions and Answers about Brown discharge from ear


Avatar f tn I'm 20 and I'm having brown discharge. It has been happening for the past two days. Today's Thursday and on Monday I had rough sex with my boyfriend. Could this have anything to do with it? It's also been about a week and a half/two weeks since my period, so I know it's not just the beginning of my period. Plus my period has never started. I read online that brown discharge could be a really bad sign or nothing at all. I just don't want to go to the doctor and then it's nothing.
Avatar m tn Hi there, The common cause of ear discharge is ear wax. However discharge may also be caused by a minor irritation or infection. The common causes of ear discharge are eczema, otitis externa, otitis media, mastoiditis or a ruptured or perforated eardrum. An ear examination may be helpful for determining the correct cause of your symptoms. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause.
Avatar n tn Hi I have recently had ear surgery having a partial mastoidectomy and tymponplasty and have experienced a watery discharge on my pillow every morning and watery ear which dries up as I move around. The Consultant said there is a chnce it could be a brain fluid leakage and said to look at the stain left on my pillow and look out for rings? I wondered if you could give me any further info on this> What do the rings look like?

1598071 tn?1298211915 Can ear mites go undetected? Even though I treat his ears daily and there is no "crusty" or brown clods discharging from them? I've only just rec'd the animal. He's well behaved, great disp. and minds very well. (No bad habits). He/s irritated with something in his ears or head making him shake his head side to side (a semicircular fashion).

Avatar f tn While a dog's ear is not as safe to clean as a cat's ear (a cat ear canal makes a sharp turn and you probably couldn't hit the eardrum if you tried), the dog ear canal still makes a 45 degree turn, so you can use a cotton ball with a bit of mineral oil on it to clean all the brown, waxy exudate from the outer part of the ear and canal near the ear opening, and then use a cotton swab with a bit of mineral oil on it to get just inside the ear canal.
Avatar n tn If your guy has a discharge actually draining from his ear, then it's probably an infection.......Just moist & kinda red is normal this time of year.....Because of allergy season, heat and humidity; ears get itchy... I'd just keep a close eye on them for a few days..... The best thing I've found to clean & sooth doggy ears is "Human Hemorrhoid Pads".....They work beautifully.....The pads fit over your finger perfectly to swab the inside of the ear....
18383999 tn?1464450276 Along with the hearing loss, I also have brown/dark brown fluid coming out of my ear. The ear wax is also dark brown and sticky which is strange because my earwax has never been like this. Sometimes, I wake up in the morning and there is some of the brown fluid on my pillow and every day when I wake up I need to use about 2 or 3 cotton buds to clear the fluid from my ear in the mornings.

Avatar f tn for the last 8 months or so, however, my problems have changed/worsened---there is constantly a build up of [something] to such a degree I can see a conformational changed from the outside of my nose, a sorta vshaped imprint from the top side of each nostril to the front tip of my septum, and a 'fullness' above it--and i can feel the build up much higher, often to above my eyes the discharge is mostly 'crusts' and of various colors--yellow, brown, black, green, bright red/orange, white and cle
Avatar n tn But recently I have been having a dark brown discharge and today it got thicker and heavier and is now almost black I just want to know if this is normal or if it something that should be looked into. I have had Mild Dysplasia in the past and wonder if this is a flare up of some sort.
Avatar f tn Cytology (microscopic anaylsis of the ear discharge) to find out if the infection is bacterial or yeast, and if bacteria are found, an ear culture to find out what antibiotics to use. 2. Oral and topical antibiotics and/or antiyeast medications for 6 weeks minimum. 3. An deep ear exam/flush under sedation to remove all the accumulated exudate that is going to act as a nidus for infection, and make sure there are no foreign objects like grass seeds deep in the canal.
Avatar f tn Foul smelling discharge from the ear is usually a sign of infection or cholesteatoma. Yellow or brown fluid is also a sign of infection and in persistent infections, the discharge may be stained with blood and is usually thick and sticky. In acute infections, the ear secretion may appear white. Chronic otitis media may result in a persistent ear discharge and some of the other symptoms of an acute otitis media may not be present.
Avatar n tn I spoke to a girlfriend recently she's had her Mirena in for a year or so and she has a green discharge from one nipple and a milky discharge from the other. Is the link we both have the Mirena IUD ? is there anyone else out there with a green nipple discharge & using a Mirena IUD ?
Avatar f tn He is having surgery on Wednesday since he keeps getting infections on the left ear. The surgeon is actually taking cartilage from another part of his ear to fill the hole before sewing it up, this way the pit will be filled and there is less chance of the cyst coming back. Apparently they use to just sew it up, but studies have shown better results when using cartilage to fill it up. I'm crossing my fingers that the other hole never gets infected.
Avatar f tn When I went to take a shower that night, I realized the area around my belly button was crusty, and I had a brown, sticky, and foul smelling discharge from my belly button. It's texture (and color) was the same as ear wax. I've read on some sites that sweat and dirt could cause a bacterial infection. I do live in a hot area with no AC. I was really confused and I confronted my mom about it and she said it's happened to her about 3 times and to put (rubbing) alcohol on it and it should go away.
Avatar n tn I just came back from the walk-in clinic about the same watery yellow discharge from my left nostril. I had it two days and only at home. The doc prescribed an eye drop and about a wk of antibiotic to take. He also recommended a humidifier and drink lots of water. Stay away from cold medicines like tylenol, he says it makes the infections last longer. Hope this helps, I was so scared when this happened to me cause it's my first time.
Avatar n tn with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch. I take cranberry supplements to keep me flushed out for a UTI, which I was treated for last year.
Avatar n tn And that I have a sinus infection. Which I do. The chunks seem to block my drainage tube from my right ear and my ear starts hurting. Can you please help? I am tired of having stinky breath. And my right side of my throat hurting all the time.
Avatar n tn My healty, almost 9 year old standard poodle received his annual vaccines on Friday, May 27. Saturday, May 28, he was unable to walk. Over the course of the next 8 days, we visited 3 vets (5 visits) and 1 vet neurologist (2 visits). The official diagnosis was "vestibular disease from vaccinosis." Every medical professional told us he would snap out of it and get better.
Avatar f tn I had laporoscopic for a cyst when I was 18 and I hardly remember the recovery, side from the nausea from the anaesthetic. I guess being young really helps with recovery!! To be safe I'd tell them you will need a week off. Good luck!!!
Avatar n tn She has stomach issues that become especially aggravated when eating unhealthy foods, likely due to her endometriosis. She recently had a ear/throat infection and was prescribed antibiotics(amoxicillin). She is on orthotricyclen birth control. Upon mixing the two, she began to bleed from her vagina. Four days after stopping the antibiotics, she continues to bleed and it concerns me. It is normal blood(like when cutting yourself) rather than discharge/menstraul blood.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar f tn (BTW, I'm about 6 weeks) I have been having an increase of vaginal discharge. I does not really have an odor. It is white, clear, and sometimes yellow in color. Is that normal to have it yellowish? Also I woke up today feeling really awful. Beyond tired, I felt weak and exhausted, Like I was coming down with something..I have been having bad back pains from my mid back down to my pelvis, and have had some snapping/popping down by the tail bone.

1745402 tn?1311711925 Yesterday afternoon after going to the rest room i noticed a really light pink discharge Abnormal discharge from the nipple Ear discharge Eye burning - itching and discharge Nasal discharge Nipple discharge - abnormal Urethral discharge culture Vaginal discharge and didnt see anything again untill that night a bit brighter moderate amount of blood.

1154548 tn?1262216618 Both clear and the brown discharge. I have never seen this amount of discharge within her ear and while sleeping, it continued to drain clear fluid. When placing my hand on the base of the ear, closest to the head, she will yelp in pain. I reviewed several pieces of information regarding ruptured eardrums and am concerned this what has occurred from the fight.
