Common ear infections: What you should know about them

Common ear infections: What you should know about them

The most common ear infections happen because of bacterial or viral growth in the middle ear, the part which lies just behind the ear drum. Middle-ear infections can be very painful and children are most commonly reported in children. Most of these infections are caused by the blockage of the Eustachian tube, which connects the ear and the throat, causing the build-up of fluids and swelling. Here is a guide to the most common forms of ear infections and their symptoms, ranging from the acute to the chronic.

Acute infections have intense symptoms but can be cured with time and treatment. They generally last for shorter durations.

In Chronic cases of infections, the patient complains of recurrent symptoms multiple times. Chronic ear infections have the potential of causing permanent damage to the ear.

Symptoms reported by most patients with Ear infections:

1. Pain in the ear (Mild to severe): This is caused due to increased pressure owing to the blockage of the Eustachian tube. Collection of fluid inside the ear would increase the intensity of pain in most cases. Children will keep tugging at their ear and most likely be cranky.
2. Redness and swelling: Both of these are inevitable accompanying symptoms in case of any infection in the body.
3. Oozing of the fluids: The blockage leads to the fluid being released from the ear which can be watery, thick yellow or mixed with blood depending on the severity and type of infection.
4. Fever
5. Difficulty in sleeping.
6. In some cases when the infection spreads, difficulty in balancing the body is experienced as body balance is maintained by ears.
7. The patient might also experience increased irritability.
8. Ear infections can also cause a hearing problem if the condition continues to go untreated.

Ear infections should be promptly dealt with to prevent long-term damages. So here is what should be done when you have ear pain symptoms.

1. Consult an ENT who will prescribe pain medication as the first line of treatment.
2. After the necessary tests are done, antibiotics are prescribed in most cases by the doctor. Other medications for palliative treatment (to ease the symptoms) are administered. However in a few rare cases, the infection might be because of non-bacterial causes in which antibiotics might not cure the state.
3. In case the problem keeps recurring, one must visit the doctor again and get further tests and treatment done.

As prevention is always better than cure, care should be taken to avoid all chances of carrying the infection to your ear. Maintain cleanliness in and around, especially in the case of children.

For further queries; we'd be happy to help!

I am 55 years male went for medical check up when I suffered breathing irregularities a few times during sleep since last couple of years. The CT scan of Paranasal Sinus report says that I am having S shaped deviated nasal septum with right sided bony nasal spur and small polynomial soft tissue in left maxillary Sinus. please help

You have got compromised airway which causes the above problem. Your condition is known as obstructive sleep apnea (osa), due to deviated nasal septum (dns). Surgery for dns and clearance of the left maxillary sinus polyp will relieve you from the symptoms.

Dear lybrate-user To be honest you have yourself given your body this trouble. Your throat problem or cough is because of smoking and it will be there with you until you smoke and in fact even for sometime after that as the tobacco has actually damaged your lungs and they cannot work as effectively as they should. Also getting back your original lip colour is not possible until you smoke. There is a slight chance it might lighten a bit years after you leave smoking. You can take some medicines to control the current episode of throat pain but it will keep coming back to you until you smoke. :) So decision is in your hands.

Dear, I surely suggest, your problem is due to your wrong attitude. Changing your attitude should solve your problem. I think two or more counseling should clear your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling. Take care.

Running nose is generally due allergy. Allergy is commonly due to dust, dust germs called dust mite, fumes or smokes animal dander, pollen and so on. Try to identify your allergens if possible and avoid them if possible again. Antihistamines are basic medicine for allergy.

I am 54 years old I have blocked nose problem for many years now, I take otrivin regularly and I cannot live without it. Due to this I have snoring and disturbed sleep every day leading to subsequent problems in day to day life. What is the permanent solution to it other than surgery which was told to be a temp relief solution as the same problem can reoccur.

Hello nasal blockage can be due to deviated nasal septum, hypertrophied turbinates, allergic conditions or infection. If you have been using otrivin for a long time that itself can cause rebound nasal congestion. You need to get examined by an ent surgeon to know whether any surgery can help you solve your problem permanently. If in any case you are not willing for surgery there is something called cpap machine for snoring & sleep apnoea. You have to get a polysomnography done before going for it. Lifestyle changes also help. No any particular medicine available for snoring. You need to stop using otrivin.

You need to get thyroid testing done and later keep yourself hydrated with fruits salads and fresh food, do not take spicy food and avoid salty food as this will hamper the protective layer of the mouth and nose.

I am suffering from tonsils since last 2 months. I wanted to know what all home remedies I can take to improve myself.

General Physician, Mumbai
Hii thats a common problem now a days best way is to identify what is its trigger that is whether you r allergic to certain things or it is purely infective in any case start with concentrated saline gargles in luke warm water 4-5 times a day if this does not works you csn use betadine gargles best of luck.

Dear your sons allergy is curable with proper case taking and homoeopathic treatment. Allergy is due to altered immunity. So the treatment should be directed to balance this alteration which can be acheived with right homoeopathy. Along with this blood should be checked for eosinophil count and ige.
