EAR INFECTION TREATMENT
Ear infections occur mostly in the middle of the ear where a tube connects your ear to the back of your throat and drains fluid that the ear produces. If it doesn’t drain properly due to a sinus infection or allergies, bacteria can build up which causes an infection.
The providers at Midwest Express Clinic are here to give you tips about how to deal with this common condition.
You should consult a medical professional, such as the ones at Midwest Express Clinic is you have the following symptoms:
- Ear pain or throbbing
- A feeling as though your ear is “clogged”
- Slight difficulty hearing
- Small amounts of clear or yellow drainage from the ear
From here, our doctors will determine a treatment plan for your ear infection. Treatments include warm compresses, ear drops, antibiotics or ibuprofen. You should seek emergency care if you experience bleeding from your ear, severe hearing loss, or if you suspect the ear drum may be perforated.
