Causes of ear boil formation
The main reasons for the formation of boils is a decrease in immunity and metabolic disorders. Pathology can also develop as a result of mechanical injuries into which staphylococcus penetrates. Hypothermia, as well as a hereditary predisposition - factors contributing to the development of purulent infection.
With proper treatment, complications do not occur. But if a patient tries to squeeze or open an unripe boil or takes hot baths, visits a sauna, the consequences can be serious - the infection will spread throughout the body. In this case, prolonged inpatient treatment is required. It is especially dangerous to injure abscesses that are localized near the lymph nodes, in which case lymphadenitis rapidly develops (no less dangerous disease than blood poisoning).
Even if there is only one boil, be sure to consult a dermatologist!
In our clinic, furunculosis and its complications are effectively treated. We will diagnose, establish the cause of the disease, prescribe adequate treatment and prevent the formation of scars at the site of the abscess.
Complications of the ear boil are caused by the spread of pathogenic microflora or purulent masses into regional anatomical structures. Most often, mastoiditis, diffuse external otitis media, auricle chondritis and temporomandibular joint arthritis occur. In some cases, stenosis of the ear canal is formed, leading to persistent conductive hearing loss. Miringitis, otitis media are much less common. With severe immunodeficiency, there is a risk of a rapid spread of infection into the brain cavity with the further development of meningitis, encephalitis, venous sinus thrombosis. In such cases, systemic generalization of the infectious process is also possible - sepsis.
Ear boil treatment
In the infiltration stage, conservative treatment is carried out, the purpose of which is to stop the inflammatory process and prevent the accumulation of purulent masses. At the stage of abscess formation or in the presence of signs of complications, surgical intervention is indicated. In general, treatment of external limited otitis media includes the following therapeutic measures:
• Pharmacotherapy. Consists of broad-spectrum antibiotics or agents selected according to the results of an antibiotic sensitivity test; anti-inflammatory, antihistamines and painkillers, antipyretics, vitamin complexes. As a local treatment, the external ear is rinsed with antiseptics or a hypertonic solution, and a turunda impregnated with the same means is installed in the ear canal.
• Surgery. Its essence lies in opening a boil under local anesthesia, evacuating purulent contents, washing the formed cavity with solutions of antiseptics and antibiotics, and setting up a drainage system.
• Physiotherapy. UHF, Ural federal district, Sollux, LUCH-2, laser, ultrasound and magnetotherapy, selective chromotherapy, dry warming compresses are widely used. The choice of a specific technique depends on the therapeutic goal - relief of the inflammatory syndrome, preparation for surgery, acceleration of regeneration processes.
