ANSWER: Dear Jairo,

It is most likely some fluid/wax that settled down by your eardrum following cleaning or it could be the start of an infection.  If it does not get better through today, I would recommend you have your primary doctor take a look.

QUESTION: My appointment is on the 10th I feel kind of a hot sansation like a fever and vertigo so it might be a ear infection, could it heal by it self or I need some medecation? Can I lose my hearing cause I'm very scare.

Although it is possible that it could resolve on its own, proper medications are the way to go to help you feel better as soon as possible.  Generally, outer and middle ear infections will not cause long-term damage, unless the infection becomes chronic or is left untreated for a long period of time (months).

In 2007, I completed my Doctor of Audiology and have been providing audiological care for almost 5 years. I have vestibular, cochlear implant, and pediatric experience along with prescribing, fitting, and verification of hearing aid amplification as part of comprehensive hearing loss rehabilitation.
