Hello, I am 19 year old male. And from Delhi. I wanted to know that how can I get rid of acne marks on my face. My face is full of scars, especially the area near nose. Please help! Thanks.
I have saviour throat problem from past 1 week and I think it is because of drinking cold drinks or by climate change. So what should I do?
Middle ear infection, also called Otitis media, is an infection due to bacteria or virus behind the eardrum. It is an inflammation of the middle ear, seen mostly in children. There is an area behind the eardrum, which has small vibrating bones. This kind of an infection happens usually in early spring or winter seasons. Usually, it does not need any kind of treatment, but since it is a recurring infection, it is always good to consult a doctor.
Symptoms of middle ear infection
Once the symptoms start appearing, the chances of infection are very fast. Here are some of the symptoms that you should watch out for:
- Severe ear pain, especially when you are sleeping
- A flow of fluids from the affected ear
- Diminished hearing
- Loss of appetite
- High fever
- Difficulty in hearing
- Excess crying in case of children
When you feel that the symptoms are unbearable and last for a very long time, you should consult a doctor immediately.
Causes of recurring middle ear infection
- Any virus or bacteria in the ear
- Any other types of illness
- Cold, allergy, or flu
- Swelling in the nasal passage
Treatment for recurring middle ear infection:
You should first see an ENT specialist for any kind of infection in your ears. There are many different kinds of treatments available for a middle ear infection. In most of the cases, the treatment will be decided based on the age, medical conditions, and present health condition of the affected individual.
A doctor will also take into consideration the following two factors:
- How severe is the infection?
- Will you be able to tolerate the dose of antibiotics?
For babies between the age of 6 months to 23 months, this kind of middle ear infection usually goes away in just 48 hours. So, it is always good to wait. For adults, most of the time, antibiotics are prescribed. Doctors suggest warm compress for kids as it is not healthy to give them pain medication. But in case the pain is not tolerable, a mild dose of pain medication is suggested along with a warm compression. Adults can take pain medication. Smoking should strictly be avoided when you are having a middle ear infection. Even passive smoking can be painful. Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry; so talk to the doctor immediately, if the ear pain in kids lasts for more than 48 hours.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
