Waimea Valley, Oahu
I don’t know what’s going on in David’s left ear. He has been complaining about tinnitus and hearing loss for months. Dr. K treated it with ear drops and also removed wax on two occasions.
Well, this week David’s tinnitus was so bad that he saw Dr. K a third time and learned there was pus in the ear canal. The fluid in his ear was drained and tested. Two types of bacteria were found, and David was prescribed Cipro (antibiotic pills) and ear drops. Let’s hope this treatment cures him once and for all.
I attribute his infection to swimming in the pool at the gym every night, but David doesn’t think so, as he uses ear plugs and the water is chlorinated.
What else could be causing this problem?
