Ear Infection Treatment When Ridgefield, CT, Residents Need It Most

Picture of a young girl holding her ear in pain.Are you experiencing the signs of an ear infection? If so, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt treatment. While many providers aren’t able to offer same-day care, we provide ear infection treatment on a walk-in basis. What’s more, our Ridgefield, Connecticut, office is open every day of the year with extended hours, so you can receive care quickly even if your symptoms arise at night or over the weekend.

Common Ear Infection Symptoms

When a bacterial or viral infection develops in the space behind the eardrum (the middle ear), it can cause:

  • Ear pain (which often worsens when lying down)
  • Fluid drainage
  • Difficulty hearing

Notably, children may also experience a fever, a headache, reduced appetite, and balance issues (you should always seek medical care for children under six months old who are experiencing an ear infection).

Ear infection symptoms typically resolve on their own, often within just one day. But if your symptoms last longer than that, or if you’re experiencing severe pain or drainage of pus, blood, or another fluid, you should seek ear infection treatment from a professional. They may prescribe antibiotics, pain medication, or anesthetic ear drops to relieve your symptoms.

"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."
