Serous otitis media is a disorder where fluids accumulates in the middle ear. The Eustachian tubes usually drain out these fluids but in children this does not happen optimally. It is caused by adenoids, infections, allergy and an underdeveloped Eustachian tube. Antihistamines, decongestants and antibiotics are medications used to treat this disorder. Surgery may be required in severe cases.
