Offering Ear Infection Treatment on a Walk-In Basis in Norwalk, CT
When you need treatment for an ear infection, where will you turn? If your primary care provider isn’t able to fit you in for an appointment, or if your work or school schedule prevents you from visiting their office during regular business hours, you have an alternative: PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our Norwalk, Connecticut, location proudly offers ear infection treatment on a walk-in basis every day of the year. Depending on your condition, we may be able to prescribe antibiotics, pain medication, or anesthetic ear drops.
What Are the Signs of an Ear Infection?
If a bacterium or virus has infected your middle ear (the space behind your eardrum), you may suddenly experience the following symptoms:
- Ear pain (this may get worse when you lie down)
- Fluid drainage
- Difficulty hearing
Children often also experience a fever, a headache, a loss of appetite, and problems keeping their balance.
Do You Need Professional Treatment?
Most ear infections resolve on their own, without the need for medical care. But you should consult with a professional if you:
- Have been dealing with symptoms for more than one day
- Are experiencing severe ear pain
- Have noticed blood, pus, or another fluid draining from your ear
Children younger than six months old will also require professional ear infection treatment.
