CSOM with fungal debris You have add antibiotic +anti fungal drops Aural wash. Subject for pus C/S, CT PNS,to rule out DM Treated as conservatively, if not responding go for surgical correction ( either Tympanoplasty,or mastoidictomy,)
Treatment as outlined Pus for culture and sensitivity. Once discharge subsides , ear examination under microscope or Endoscope Xray mastoids. CT PNS to know the extent of sinus disease.. Rule out diabetes
As seen in the pic. pt. seems to have Otitis externa also. So give local application of some antibiotic+ antifungal with steroid ointment in the ear canal along with this tmt.
Yes I agree with you sir, before that we have to examine the ear as there can be fungal debris sometimes which requires microsuction and if there is a perforation we have to tell the patient also how we have to manage it.
