Is your young child unusually fussy and tugging on his or her ear? Or, are you experiencing ear pain and slightly muffled hearing? A middle ear infection may be to blame. This very common condition occurs when viruses or bacteria infect the small, air-filled space behind the eardrum. If you live in the Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, area, and want to find same-day treatment for bothersome ear infection symptoms, top-notch care is available right around the corner at PhysicianOne Urgent Care—a top-rated practice and affiliate of Tufts Medical Center.

Walk-in patients are always welcome, and those who prefer to plan ahead can reserve an appointment online.

What Are the Symptoms of a Middle Ear Infection?

Middle ear infection symptoms can vary, but usually involve:

  • Ear pain
  • Difficulty hearing
  • Headache
  • Fluid draining from the ear, which may be clear, bloody, or pus-like
  • Fever (in children)

Many viral ear infections will clear on their own in about a day, but it’s important to seek medical attention if your symptoms last longer than 24 hours, are severe, keep you awake at night, or include ear drainage.

"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."
