    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

The NEW ent THINKS IT IS FUNGUS, AND PUT PURPLE STUFF IN MY EAR , EAR IS SR\TILL RED AND VERY BAD PAIN, I ALSO HAVE VERTIGO, PLEASE HELP
    Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
    How do you think I can help you, Jamie? Unlike the six ENTs that have examined you, I cannot. I also have no way of reviewing your medical records, etc. I can understand your frustration with six months of ear pain and symptoms, but the Internet poses some significant barriers, as you might imagine.
