The Team to Choose for Ear Infection Treatment in Newtown, CT

Picture of a man holding his ear in pain.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.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
