Ear Infections

Ear Infection Treatment in Stamford, CT 

Ear infections are common and when we have them they can be quite painful. Inflammation and fluid buildup occurs causing the Eustachian tubes in the middle ear to swell. Ear infections are commonly caused from viral infection or bacterial infections such as a cold, flu or allergies.  

In children, ear infection signs and symptoms can include loss of balance, ear pain, difficulty sleeping, tugging or pulling at the ear, crying and/or acting more irritable than usual, headache, loss of appetite, fluid drainage from the ear and a fever of 100 F or higher. 

In adults, common signs and symptoms include fluid drainage from the ear, diminished hearing, fever, pus drainage, inner ear itching, ear redness and ear pain. 

Depending on the cause of the ear infection, an appropriate course of treatment will be determined. If an individual has an ear infection from a virus, then antibiotics would not be prescribed to treat the infection.
