If you have a young child, you are no stranger to ear infections. Ear infections are extremely common in kids and they can be extremely painful. This article will explain just what an ear infection is and some of the best ways they can be treated.
What is an Ear Infection?
According to the Mayo Clinic, an ear infection (acute otitis media) is most often a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. They can become extremely painful from the fluid being built up in the ear.
How to Treat Ear Infections
It is true that for some people, ear infections can go away on their own. But if a few days go by and the symptoms do not seem to be improving, it is good to see a doctor. When visiting a doctor, on most occasions they will prescribe you an antibiotic to fight the infection. It is important to listen carefully to the instructions given by the doctor and to follow them strictly.
When it comes to the pain aspect of an ear infection, there is really nothing a doctor can do. They will usually recommend an OTC painkiller such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen that can sometimes take hours to become effective.
