Seven days to go and it will gonna be the big day for almost everyone in the world. The most celebrated day of the year, Christmas! I have been continuously reminding DH to watch out his diet. Being a diabetic, he needs to guard himself from sweets, which of course is very in demand food during the holidays. I told him to keep himself off those goodies or he’ll in up in hospital bed on holidays and I don’t want to be seeking some medical supplies on wee hours if ever. Health is wealth as they always say and very true indeed, it is one great gift that we ever received from the good Lord. Priceless!
Is what we felt after we went to an EENT Specialist this afternoon, Gabby has been long complaining about her left ear. I would sometimes caught her trying to shake her head or insert her finger to her left ear. There was also a foul smell and dark yellow stain on cotton buds whenever I clean her ears after taking a bath. We were so worried that she might be having an ear infection or her ear drums might be broken. But thank Gd that it was not the case when the doctor checked on her ear, Gabby was very cooperative and behave all through the session. She had an impacted cerumen which is a condition in which earwax has become tightly packed in the external ear canal to the point that the canal is blocked.. In short “Nanigas na tutuli” The doctor performed an irrigation, I am happy that she was really very nice and friendly to Gabby. Irrigation process lasted for about 20 minutes or less I think. Oh boy! was really surprised when this little black and thick thingy was removed from her left ear, I just couldn’t imagine how it get stucks on her ears. The doctor then careful explained to us how to properly clean her ears
- clean the ears only twice a week
- never try to insert the cotton buds deeply into the ears for it is one cause and aggravates an impacted cerumen, which I think is what I am doing while I clean her ears. For the cotton buds will push the earwax to go inside the ear canal.
- clean/ remove the earwax on the external part of the ear just right outside the ear canal. For the ears naturally has its way on cleaning the internal part.
After the treatment we headed to Robinsons Pioneer to do the grocery, bought Gabby and Nicco their sketch pad and a slippers for Gabby. We left Nicco at home since it will be hard if we’ll tag him along to the clinic.
DOCS @ WORK. This clinic is just a stone throw away from home this is located at the Maysilo Circle.
We didn’t bother to take photo anymore while the irrigation process is performed. But this is how it’s usually done.
Irrigation is the most common method of removing impacted cerumen. It involves washing out the ear canal with water from a commercial irrigator or a syringe with a catheter attached. Although some doctors use Water Piks to remove cerumen, most do not recommend them because the stream of water is too forceful and may damage the eardrum. The doctor may add a small amount of alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or other antiseptic. The water must be close to body temperature; if it is too cold or too warm, the patient may feel dizzy or nauseated. After the ear has been irrigated, the doctor will apply antibiotic ear drops to protect the ear from infection.
Irrigation should not be used to remove cerumen if the patient’s eardrum is ruptured or missing; if the patient has a history of chronic otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear) or a myringotomy (cutting the eardrum to allow fluid to escape from the middle ear); or if the patient has hearing in only one ear.
If irrigation cannot be used or fails to remove the cerumen, the patient is referred to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist. The specialist can remove the wax with a vacuum device or a curette, which is a small scoop-shaped surgical instrument.
Some doctors prescribe special ear drops, such as Cerumenex, to soften the wax. The most common side effect of Cerumenex is an allergic skin reaction. Over-the-counter wax removal products include Debrox or Murine Ear Drops. A 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide may also be used. These products are less likely to irritate the skin of the ear.
My friend’s daughter is having a problem with her weight, it’s already been a year of finding the right formula milk for her but it doesn’t fit her still. there is also an infant hiccups whenever finishing a milk so we are thinking if there’s a problem on her digestive system. The mom cannot breast feed the baby since she was on a medical treatment and have been drinking medications that might affect the baby when she breastfeeds. I accompanied her to a pediatrician and she was prescribed to take pediasure which is a nutritional drink with a balance supplement for kids 1 to 10 years of age. I have been reading and hearing good reviews and results of this nutrition drink.
Taking care of a baby is an essential especially during the early years as this is the important phase wherein everything is in initial formation of their body and definitely have to be a healthy one for them to grew up strong.
I was surprise to find out that it is available online on different sites. I would definitely recommend this to my friend to order this one online as it is on a discounted price plus you can get this free of shipping if you purchase $25 or more. She could save a lot instead of buying it here over the counter.
It is very stressful whenever your loved ones get sick. Most especially if it entails them to get hospitalized, we all know that being in the hospital is kinda traumatic experience for many right?! During this A(H1N1) scare that we are encountering and many people getting infected already has really made us paranoid. I myself was a victim of such paranoia. My boss even asked me to wear facial mask as I kept on coughing like a barking dog at the office. I saw him browsing the site of allegromedical.com and overheard him talking to my other boss that he will be ordering some medical supplies like facial masks, gloves, syringes, disposable diapers and even catheter, I wonder why he’ll be needing those! Oh! it is definitely not for our office medical supplies. I am pretty sure. lol!
Yes. I too have been sick with colds and coughs for days now, the boss did gave me a facial mask awhile ago while at work, he might be bothered with my coughing like a dog. I can’t blame them as h1n1 is now really getting everywhere. Oh well, I just hope I really get well fast… I will be absent tomorrow to take my very much needed rest…
