Thread: Eardrum blood blister

  1. Default Eardrum blood blister


    The flanged dome from the Widex Beyond dislodged from the receiver and stuck in my ear canal when I was out of town on a weekend trip. After flying back home, I got to the dr office and had it extracted. Very unpleasant experience, it took 3 attempts to get it out.

    Air hit my eardrum and I yelped. Then the NP looked in with the scope and said, "You have a blood blister on your eardrum, it looks like a tiny strawberry!" She said it would heal up in a couple of days. That was 7 weeks ago.

    It hasn't gone away. It has reduced in brightness, it has migrated, but it's still there and it's bothersome. Not as severely painful (9/10), just everpresent and sore (4.5/10). If the rogue dome didn't cause it, maybe the airplane ride did. Nonetheless, 7 weeks is a long time to suffer and there's no end in sight.

    Any guidance or suggestions?
