Introduction According to statistics, 30% of all otorhinolaryngological diseases are acute forms of otitis. preschoolers are more likely than adults to develop the disease. eighty percent of children under the age of three have had otitis media at least once. Infection that cause inflammation of the hearing and otitis media [1]:  pneumococci;  streptococci;  staphylococci;  includes hemophilic rods and other microorganisms. Any ear infection is very dangerous and you should see a doctor if you have any symptoms (described below). Symptoms of moderate otitis media include [2]:  severe pain in the ear;  fever;  purulent discharge from the ear canal after 1-3 days. After the pus comes out, the patient's condition improves, the body temperature drops, and the pain is significantly reduced or eliminated. The pus comes out of a hole in the eardrum. this outcome of the disease is considered positive, and with proper treatment, the eardrum is gradually restored without affecting hearing. The negative development of the disease is dangerous because it is impossible for the pus to come out and the pus can spread into the skull. This otitis can * Corresponding author: (Nargiza Orzeuvna Xamrakulova) Received: May 12, 2021; Accepted: Jun. 21, 2021; Published: Jul. 15, 2021 Published online at cause meningitis as well as brain abscess. to prevent such dire consequences, consult an otolaryngologist for advice and treatment at the first signs of otitis. Classification of inflammation by location [3]:  external otitis;  otitis media;  internal otitis. Often, otitis externa develops in swimmers. inflammation is caused by damage to the outer ear canal or ear canal. Violation of the protective layer leads to the entry and proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms in the area, which then forms a boil. If left untreated, otitis externa can become severe and the inflammation can spread to the earlobes and bone. In such cases, the patient may experience symptoms such as severe throbbing pain, swelling of the ear, and a moderate rise in body temperature. In otitis media, the inflammatory process spreads to the airway cavity of the middle ear, which is located behind the tympanic membrane of the ear: the tympanic cavity, the ear canal, and the mastoid tumor. Otitis media often progresses from catarrhal to purulent. Acute catarrhal otitis of the middle ear can also form as a complication of arvi (inflammation), which occurs after the pathogen enters the eardrum cavity of the infection. In the early stages, hearing loss may be accompanied by noise in the ears, but the temperature may be normal or slightly elevated. If these symptoms are ignored, catarrhal otitis may develop further, with sudden onset of high fever and ear pain. The pain can then spread to the eyes, neck, throat or teeth. to treat such otitis, you only need to eliminate the infection, and for this you need to see a doctor immediately [4]. Acute purulent otitis media is an advanced catarrhal form 508 Nargiza Orzeuvna Xamrakulova et al.: Improving Conservative Treatment of Chronic Moderate Purulent Otitis in Patients in the Postoperative Period of the disease. the disease is accompanied by rupture of the tympanic membrane and the outflow of pus, followed by a decrease in body temperature. Treatment should include regular removal of pus from the ear, which can only be done by a doctor, while fighting the infection. Also, pus does not always come out on its own. If the eardrum is very strong, surgery may be needed to pierce it. this procedure is called “paracentesis” and is performed using local anesthesia: at the most convenient point, a hole is made with a special tool and the pus is completely removed. When the pus comes out, the eardrum is restored and the quality of hearing is not impaired [5]. If left untreated, otitis media can spread to the skull. as a result, otitis media develops, which affects the vestibular apparatus, leading to brain abscess and at least partial or complete hearing loss. So when the first signs of otitis are observed, you should see a doctor immediately without putting anything in the ear or putting a tampon with alcohol or other antiseptics. 2. Materials and Methods When examined by otoscope, the middle ear looks red and inflamed with purulent discharge in CSOM patients (Figs 1 and 2). It is one of the most common chronic infectious diseases worldwide especially affecting children. Source: Each ENT disease is accompanied by the production of large amounts of mucus. As the amount of mucus increases, in unpleasant situations, the mucus enters the Eustachian canal and disrupts the ventilation of the drum cavity. The cells of the tympanic cavity begin to secrete inflammatory fluid. In addition to blockage of the Eustachian tube, pathogenic microorganisms, which are usually part of the local microflora, also contribute to the increase of inflammation. The causes of otitis are [6]: Figure 1. Schematic representation of the ear under normal and CSOM conditions. (a) Under normal conditions, the middle ear cavity is clear and empty. (b) In contrast, the middle ear becomes red and inflamed with the presence of fluid under CSOM conditions. The red colour denotes inflammation, while yellow indicates luid during CSOM Figure 2. Otoscopic examination of the ear. (a) A normal ear from a healthy individual shows an intact eardrum and no fluid. (b) In CSOM patients, there is tympanic membrane perforation and purulent discharge American Journal of Medicine and Medical Sciences 2021, 11(7): 507-511 509  Infection from other ENT organs - a complication of other infectious and viral diseases;  Various diseases of the nose, including its sinuses and throat. This includes all types of rhinitis, curvature of the inner wall of the nose, and in children - adenoids;  Ear supras injuries;  Cooling and decreased immunity. Although otitis is characterized only by ear pain, if the disease is not treated properly or not treated at all, the complications associated with it can affect many other organs. Neglecting otitis can lead to serious consequences, including lower jaw rot, salivary gland damage, and often disability. But an even more dangerous form of otitis is that it is not always easy to diagnose the disease. For example, in some cases the disease is not accompanied by pain in the ears. Often, otitis media disrupts the gastrointestinal tract. This is because the abdomen and the ear are connected by a single nerve. Therefore, during otitis, especially in children, abdominal distention, vomiting, constipation may occur. Occasionally, appendicitis is suspected when these symptoms are present, in which case a surgeon should be consulted. However, the diagnosis of otitis media in young children should always be made by an ENT doctor [7]. If the mother detects only a violation of the gastrointestinal tract of the child and continues treatment independently, then otitis can turn into a more serious disease - autoantritis. This is the passage of pus behind the ear, which adds to the existing inflammation, causing swelling in the ears and a rise in temperature. This complication can occur both in the following days and a month after the onset of the disease. If these symptoms of otitis are not detected, then meningitis develops within a few months, so the disease should be given serious attention. Other common complications of otitis include chronic disease, vestibular dysfunction, and deafness. In addition, complications of otitis media may include [8]:  Meningitis and other intracranial complications (brain abscess, encephalitis, hydrocephalus) - postoperative stage, if measures are not taken in a timely manner;  Paresis of facial nerves;  Rupture of the tympanic membrane and obstruction of the ear with pus;  Cholesteatoma - a capsule-shaped tumor of the epithelium and keratin that forms in the form of a tumor-like cyst, blocking the ear canal;  Mastoiditis - inflammation of the mastoid tumor, which leads to damage to the auditory bones in the middle ear;  Disorders of the gastrointestinal tract - diarrhea, vomiting, diarrhea;  Hearing loss or complete deafness. Chronic otitis is very difficult to treat and the disease significantly worsens the quality of life - hearing is impaired, there is a constant inflammatory process in the ears and pus. Often, conservative methods are not enough to treat chronic otitis in adults, and surgery may be required. Acute otitis is also diagnosed by external examination. The doctor will examine some of the specific symptoms of the disease: a reddened tympanic membrane, decreased mobility, and the presence of cracks. These symptoms can be easily checked - the patient swells his cheeks without opening his mouth. Swelling of the ears is a technique called the Valsalva maneuver, which is often used by divers and divers to correct pressure in the ear. As air enters the drum cavity, the membrane bends significantly. If the drum cavity is filled with liquid, then there is no bending. The tympanic membrane rupture occurs as a result of the discharge of pus after the pus cavity is filled, and it can also be observed with the unaided eye. Testing hearing on a special device is called audiometry. Measurement of intraocular pressure - tympanometry - is also used to diagnose chronic otitis [9]. If there is a decrease in hearing and frequent dizziness, there is a reasonable suspicion of otitis media (inflammation of the labyrinth of the ear). In this case, audiometry is used and an otorhinolaryngologist and a neurologist are required to perform the examination. 3. Results These inflammatory mediators can also penetrate the round window membrane and pass into the inner ear causing cochlear damage (Fig. 3). After the onset of discomfort in the ears, whether from time to time there is numbness or pain in the ears, it is necessary to immediately consult a doctor for proper treatment. Otherwise, acute otitis can become chronic and leave scars, thinning, bumps on the tympanic membrane, which can often lead to inflammation [10]. If it is not possible to see a doctor on the day of the earache, the only thing you can do is reduce the pain. Antihistamines can help relieve pain (they reduce pressure in the ear and reduce pain). If the pain is severe, taking painkillers may help. The main goal of otitis prevention in adults is to prevent mucosal obstruction of the Eustachian tubes. This is not an easy task. For example, acute rhinitis is accompanied by the release of liquid mucus, but during treatment the mucus becomes much thicker and accumulates in large quantities. In order to prevent otitis media due to the persistence of pus, it is necessary to treat the relevant diseases in a timely manner, such as colds, sinusitis and other diseases. What to do to prevent complications of ENT diseases in the form of otitis [11]:  Use vasoconstrictors to reduce swelling of the nasal mucosa;  Drink more water while maintaining fluid balance;  At very high temperatures (above 38.5°C) take timely antipyretic drugs, do not allow the body temperature to remain high for a long time; 510 Nargiza Orzeuvna Xamrakulova et al.: Improving Conservative Treatment of Chronic Moderate Purulent Otitis in Patients in the Postoperative Period Figure 3. OM and inner ear damage. The bacterial infection of the middle ear (1) leads to the gener ation of inflammatory mediators (2) that can penetrate from the round window (3) to the inner ear, leading to damage to outer (OHCs) and inner (IHCs) auditory hair cells (4)  Keep the air temperature in the house around 18-20°C;  Maintain humidity in the room, clean the air and clean it regularly with a damp cloth (wipe with a damp cloth);  Follow the rules of sniffing - strong pressure can damage the ear canals and disperse mucus. Squeeze each nostril separately, squeezing one nostril with your finger while squeezing the other. But the most important way to prevent the disease is to see a doctor in time for the first symptoms. 4. Discussion If otitis externa is detected in adults, the main treatment is the use of ear drops. In a healthy person with normal immunity, external otitis can be cured by the use of drops alone, without the need for antibiotics in the form of injections or tablets. The drops may contain only an antibacterial drug or a combination of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agent. Otitis externa is treated for an average of one week. In general, the following are prescribed for the treatment of otitis externa [12]:  Antibiotics - norrofloxacin (normax), ciprofloxacin hydrochloride (Ciprox), rifamycin (Otofa);  Corticosteroid antibiotics - Candibiotics (beclomethasone, lidocaine, clotrimazole, chloramphenicol), Sofradex (dexamethasone, framicetin, gramicidin);  Antiseptics (Miramistin);  Antimicrobial ointments - clotrimazole (Candide), natamycin (Pimafutsin, Pimafucort) - if the cause of otitis externa is a fungus. The recently approved ointment, which contains the active ingredient "mupirocin", which has no pathological effect on normal skin microflora, but is effective against fungi, is also showing its effectiveness. Antibacterial drugs are commonly used to treat otitis media. However, the treatment of otitis in adults is slightly different from the treatment of otitis in children - in adults, the disease has a 90% chance of healing on its own, eliminating the need for antibiotics. However, the remaining 10% of cases can lead to very serious consequences, so if no improvement is observed after the first two days of illness, antibiotics are prescribed. Taking antibiotics should be prescribed by a qualified physician as the side effects of such substances can be dangerous. However, complications from otitis cause up to 28,000 deaths a year, so treatment is usually justified. Antibiotics are usually given in tablet form, but if the patient is unable to take the medicine, an injection is given. The following are used to treat otitis media in older patients [13]:  Amoxicillin (Flemoxin Solyutab, Ekobol, Ospamox or Amosin);  Combination of amoxicillin with clavunal acid (Flemoclav, Augmentin, Ecoclav);  Cefuroxime (Sefurus, Aksetin, Zinnat, Zinatsef). Other medications may be prescribed, but it is important to follow the basic requirements of antibiotic treatment: the duration of treatment should be at least a week. If the microorganisms are not completely destroyed due to the discontinuation of the antibiotics, the bacteria will resist this group of drugs and the antibiotics will no longer affect them. 5. Conclusions Complex treatment of otitis media usually involves the use of drops. Because not all ear drops are the same, if an earache starts, not every ear drop is right for the treatment. The difference is that the active ingredients for the treatment of otitis are completely different before and after the perforation of the tympanic membrane. If the tympanic membrane is intact, lidocaine, benzocaine, or choline salicylate may be used as painkillers - Otipax, Otinum, or Otizol. In the catarrhal form of otitis media in adults, antibiotic drops do not help at all, because the inflammation does not reach the center of inflammation behind the eardrum. Conversely, if the pus has come out and a crack has American Journal of Medicine and Medical Sciences 2021, 11(7): 507-511 511 formed in the tympanic membrane, the pain-relieving drops are of no use, as they can lead to undesirable consequences. They are not needed because the pain goes away as soon as the pus comes out. Antibiotics are prescribed - "Normax", "Tsiprofarm", "Miramistin" and others, to prevent the recurrence of pus and the penetration of pus into the inner ear, they are prescribed by a doctor. The use of ototoxic antibiotics, alcohol solutions, phenazone or choline salicylate is strictly prohibited [14]. When drug treatment is ineffective, a large amount of pus accumulates behind the eardrum. This causes severe pain and the absorption of the products of the vital activity of bacteria into the blood. General intoxication of the body is observed. When such symptoms appear, doctors consider paracentesis to be an emergency, a practice that prevents the development of serious complications of otitis. The operation is performed under local anesthesia. With minimal damage to the paracentesis, a hole is made in the thinnest part of the eardrum using a special thin needle, through which pus is expelled. In addition, a finely wound wound heals much faster than a crack created by natural perforation, and minimal scarring occurs after paracentesis. The next day, the health condition improves dramatically and the patient’s recovery accelerates. This is especially true of paracentesis, which is used to treat otitis in children. Immediate paracentesis is recommended in the following cases [15]:  Inflammation of the inner ear;  Cerebral palsy (manifested as headache and nausea);  Damage to facial nerves;  Three days after the start of antibacterial treatment, the pain does not subside and the pus does not come out. Unlike external or secondary otitis, the treatment of inflammation of the auditory labyrinth involves complex procedures and is carried out in medical institutions under the constant supervision of a neurologist and otolaryngologist. not only antibiotics are needed to treat otitis media, but also neuroprotectants and other medications to improve microcirculation in the inner ear.
