Ear Infection Symptoms

There are various types of ear infections, each of which produces its own set of symptoms. The most common kind is a middle ear infection (also known as “acute otitis media”), which occurs when a virus or bacterium infects the space behind the eardrum. If you have a middle ear infection, you may experience:

  • Pain within the infected ear (this may worsen whenever you lie down)
  • Hearing difficulties
  • Fluid draining from the infected ear

Do You Need Professional Ear Infection Treatment?

If you’re experiencing the signs of an ear infection, you may be wondering whether you need to visit a provider for treatment. Many middle ear infections resolve on their own, without the need for medical intervention. However, you should consult with a professional if:

  • You’re still dealing with symptoms after 24 hours
  • You’re experiencing severe ear pain
  • There is blood, pus, or another fluid draining from your ear
  • A child younger than six months old is experiencing 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."
