The Signs & Symptoms of an Ear Infection

When a bacterium or virus infects the middle ear (located behind the eardrum), this can cause a middle ear infection (otitis media). Often resulting from congestion and swelling that occur due to a separate illness, middle ear infections can lead to symptoms like:

  • Ear pain (this may worsen when lying down)
  • Fluid drainage from the ear
  • Difficulty hearing
  • Headache
  • Fever (mostly in children)

While ear infections often resolve on their own, professional medical treatment may be required in cases where:

  • Ear infection symptoms last for more than one day
  • Severe ear pain is occurring
  • Pus, blood, or other fluids are draining from the ear
  • The individual is less than six months old

In some patients, ear infections may become recurrent. It’s important to not ignore these infections, as they may potentially get worse or lead to problems like hearing impairment, eardrum tears, or an infection that spreads to other parts of the body.

Ear Infection Treatment

Thankfully, effective treatment for ear infections that do not go away on their own can often be simple and painless. The treatment plan—as recommended by a medical professional—may include the use of antibiotics, pain medication, or anesthetic ear drops.

If you or your child is suffering from symptoms of an ear infection, there’s no need to wait for the prompt and reliable care you need. All you have to do is come into PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s Brockton center for ear infection treatment that’s available when you need it.

Patient

"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!"

Patient
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."

Patient
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."
