We’ve been serving patients since 2008 and have earned a five-star reputation for always delivering high-quality care with ease and speed.
Ear Infection Symptoms
The most common type of ear infection is a middle ear infection (acute otitis media). This type of infection develops when a bacterium or virus gets into the air-filled space behind the eardrum, often after another illness causes swelling and congestion within the Eustachian tubes, nasal passageways, or throat. When this happens, it can produce the following symptoms:
· Ear pain
· Fluid drainage from the ear
· Difficulty hearing
Children often experience additional ear infection symptoms, including a fever, a headache, loss of appetite, and balance issues.
Ear Infection Treatment
In many cases, ear infections will resolve on their own, so treatment will be focused on managing symptoms. This might include taking pain medication or administering anesthetic ear drops. However, in certain cases, additional treatment will be necessary (for instance, a bacterial ear infection might require an antibiotic). Our providers have extensive experience treating ear infections and will recommend the approach that’s best suited to your needs.
