What Are the Symptoms of an Ear Infection?

We frequently see patients with middle ear infections (acute otitis media) here at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Very common in toddlers and kids, middle ear infections occur in the small, air-filled space behind the eardrum. A few telltale signs of a middle ear infection include:

  • Ear pain
  • Difficulty hearing
  • Fluid draining from the ear
  • Headache
  • Fever (in children)

Many middle ear infections resolve on their own in about a day, but this isn’t always the case. It’s important to speak with a medical professional if your ear infection symptoms:

  • Persist or worsen after 24 hours
  • Keep you awake at night
  • Cause severe discomfort
  • Include ear drainage that may be clear, bloody, or pus-like

"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."
