Dr. P Jyoti :

hello

Dr. P Jyoti :

do you see my message?

Customer:

yes

Dr. P Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P Jyoti :

wax in the initial stages can often be treated at home

Dr. P Jyoti :

but not when he is having bleeding

Dr. P Jyoti :

since he is having bleeding, you have to go to the ER i am afraid

Customer:

We have tried the ear candles and he kinda of has a history of ear plug problems

Dr. P Jyoti :

the bleeding suggests he has had an injury and needs to be examined for this

Dr. P Jyoti :

injury to the canal of the ear can lead to infection which can be very painful

Customer:

well he thinks it was from scab its not bad bleeding

Dr. P Jyoti :

hence he should be examined as soon as possible in the ER

Dr. P Jyoti :

thats right, its probably some scab which has become dislodged

Customer:

do u think thats what is causing the cold as well

Dr. P Jyoti :

but this itself requires an ER visit

Customer:

i thank u very much

Dr. P Jyoti :

glad to help

Dr. P Jyoti :

going to the ER is the only option for him now with this bleeding

Dr. P Jyoti :

otherwise there can only be more complications leading to more expenses in the future

Customer:

he argues that we cant afford it is there anything we can do at home?

Customer:

will they pull the plug at the ER when we go in??

Dr. P Jyoti :

yes thats right

Dr. P Jyoti :

they can remove the plug

Dr. P Jyoti :

but the main thing is that they can examine the cause of the bleeding

Dr. P Jyoti :

and if there is active sore, they can even prescribe antibiotics if needed

Dr. P Jyoti :

for home treatment, you can use hydrogen peroxide solution

Dr. P Jyoti :

it has to be diluted adequately for this

Customer:

with water

Dr. P Jyoti :

use hydrogen gurgle and dilute it one is to three

Dr. P Jyoti :

with water, yes

Dr. P Jyoti :

dilute one is to three or two

Dr. P Jyoti :

you can try this if at all you do not want to go to the ER

Dr. P Jyoti :

but best option is to go to the ER

Dr. P Jyoti :

but try this first if you should wish to
