I have clear liquid draining from my ears

Posted by @gregorytremblay, Jan 24, 2016

I have clear liquid draining from my ears, mostly from the right, and the canals show damaged skin. I’ve seen 2 specialists and neither thinks it’s a problem. They are surely incompetant, as the 1st I saw caused an infection in my left ear. The fluid feels like automotive break fluid. Do you have an opinion? Thanks. Greg T.

Hi @gregorytremblay. I’m one of the Community Managers here at Connect. Unfortunately, we can’t provide any kind of diagnosis, but we can try to connect you with other people who have had a similar experience. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to not have an explanation – do you have any other symptoms? Any dizziness or fever?

I haven’t had those symptoms. I can feel a tickle in my ear and have to
use a paper towel to collect any liquid in the ear. I need to do this
several times each day. I’ve been using Cipro without any success. When I
awake, any fluid that drained overnight dries and becomes crust in my ear.
My GP instructed me to stop cleaning my ears, as he thinks it is causing
the damage. Not true. Thanks for you’re assistance. Greg T.

Hi @gregorytremblay. I wanted to check in and see how you’re doing since we last talked. Has your doctor been able to share any additional insight? Are you still experiencing the drainage from your ears?

Hi Rebecca.  The last word from my Doctor was “Stop cleaning your ears.”  It still drains on a regular basis and when it dries it becomes hard chunks similar to Salt but darker.  I’ve lost hope having something corrective done, and they say they can’t even test to see what the liquid is composed of or it’s origin.  Canadian Medical Care is in a huge mess.  Thanks for your concern.

Same problem here caused by food allergies, mostly fresh fruits and vegetables. My ENT physician said his wife has the same problem. Itching and drainage can be so severe that you can’t sleep. Your physician can give you a cream to clear this up.
