Ear Health

Ear Infection can be very common in children, there are different types of ear infection. External otitis also known as swimmers ear, affects the outer ear. This type of ear infection may follow a cold or a reaction to foods, commonly dairy products.

The ear canal extending from the eardrum to the outside, becomes inflamed and swollen.

Symptoms can include slight fever, discharge from the ear, and pain often severe and throbbing.

Middle ear infections or Otitis media are very common in infants and children. The site of this infection is behind the eardrum, where the small bones of the ear are located. Air pressure is regulated in this area, by the Eustachian or auditory tube, which runs from the ear to the back of the nasal cavity. If bacteria or viruses get into this space, the area becomes inflamed and fluid starts to build up. Symptoms may include sharp, dull or throbbing pain and a feeling of fullness.
