What Causes Ear Infections?
Middle ear infections—the most common type of ear infection—are common issues caused by viruses or bacteria infecting the small, air-filled space behind the eardrum. While some viral ear infections resolve on their own within a day, it's crucial to seek medical attention if symptoms persist beyond 24 hours, become severe, disrupt sleep, or involve ear drainage.
Recognizing Ear Infection Symptoms
Common symptoms of middle ear infections include:
- Ear pain
- Difficulty hearing
- Clear, bloody, or pus-like drainage from the ear
- Fever (typically only in children)
