The Team to Choose for Ear Infection Treatment in Newtown, CT
Are you experiencing the symptoms of an ear infection? If you’re in the Newtown, Connecticut, area, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt ear infection treatment. Our experienced providers will confirm whether it’s an ear infection that’s causing your symptoms and recommend a course of treatment that’s tailored to your needs.
What Are the Signs of an Ear Infection?
Ear infections occur when a bacterial or viral infection develops within the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum). Ear infection symptoms typically appear suddenly and may include:
- Ear pain (this may worsen when lying down)
- Ear fluid drainage
- Hearing difficulties
Ear infections can also cause fever, headache, loss of appetite, and balance issues, especially in children.
How Are Ear Infections Treated?
Although many ear infections will resolve on their own, you should consult with a trained provider if a child less than six months old is experiencing symptoms, or if:
- You’ve been experiencing ear infection symptoms for more than one day
- Your ear pain is particularly severe
- You’ve noticed fluids draining from your ear (possibly including blood or pus)
- You’re experiencing recurring ear infections
Ear infection treatment may involve a combination of antibiotics, pain medication, and anesthetic ear drops.
