Ear Infection Treatment When Ridgefield, CT, Residents Need It Most
Are you experiencing the signs of an ear infection? If so, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care for prompt treatment. While many providers aren’t able to offer same-day care, we provide ear infection treatment on a walk-in basis. What’s more, our Ridgefield, Connecticut, office is open every day of the year with extended hours, so you can receive care quickly even if your symptoms arise at night or over the weekend.
Common Ear Infection Symptoms
When a bacterial or viral infection develops in the space behind the eardrum (the middle ear), it can cause:
- Ear pain (which often worsens when lying down)
- Fluid drainage
- Difficulty hearing
Notably, children may also experience a fever, a headache, reduced appetite, and balance issues (you should always seek medical care for children under six months old who are experiencing an ear infection).
Ear infection symptoms typically resolve on their own, often within just one day. But if your symptoms last longer than that, or if you’re experiencing severe pain or drainage of pus, blood, or another fluid, you should seek ear infection treatment from a professional. They may prescribe antibiotics, pain medication, or anesthetic ear drops to relieve your symptoms.
