However, TTI is not without risk of complications and can cause otorrhoea

The individual typically displays a mild, gentle, weepy and clingy disposition, appears chilly, fears being alone at night, has a pale face, fever, is thirstless, and develops a very painful left-sided ear infection with a thick bland offensive otorrhoea
, tinnitus and deafness.
Local therapy with MEKRITEN in the treatment of CSOM leads to faster termination of otorrhoea
and is accompanied by fewer adverse drug reactions.
A proportion may become associated with otalgia, reduced hearing, or otorrhoea
. Persistently symptomatic pars tensa retraction is treatable .
A one-year-old girl presented to us with intermittent bilateral otorrhoea

Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) is characterized by recurrent or persistent ear discharge (otorrhoea

was >12 months in 4 of those patients.
There was a history of right-sided otorrhoea
for many years and, despite multiple visits to his local clinic, the patient was never referred to an otolaryngologist.
This study concluded that antibiotics seem to be most beneficial in children younger than 2 years of age with bilateral acute otitis media, and in children with both acute otitis media and otorrhoea
. For most other children with mild disease, an observational policy seems justified.
