Non Invasive Approach to Ear Pain

Do you suffer from ear infections?
I am prone to sinus infections which in turn causes ear pain. Fluid collects in my middle ear. The doctor treats this infection usually with antibiotics, but my body seems to resist because of the repeated use of anitibiotics..

Children are more prone to get ear infections. It is one of the most common infections frequently in the first 2 to 4 years of their life.

What Is An Ear Infection?

The middle ear is a pocket behind the eardrum.When infection is present in the middle ear it is called otitis media. Germs and bacteria can get into the middle ear which then causes pain. Between the middle ear and your throat there are tubes called eustachian. This tube (one on each side) keeps pressure from building up by letting air move in and out. If the eustachian tubes get blocked when you have a cold or allergies, then germs seep inside causing an ear infection.

Ear infections can be caused by bacteria or considered viral. Bacteria infections are usually treated with antibiotics. If you get repeated viral infections, the need for surgery may be necessary. This surgery which can be permanent or not, consists of having a small plastic tube inserted into the eardrum. This tube is a vent to relieve the pressure of the buildup of fluid or infection. It also acts as a drain for the fluid.

Common Signs of Otitis media in children:

> unusual irritability
> difficulty sleeping
> tugging or pulling at one or both ears
> fever
> fluid draining from the ear
> loss of balance
> unresponsiveness to quiet sounds or other signs of hearing difficulty such as sitting too close to the television or being inattentive

Some ear infections can clear up on their own, but some require treatment. Treatments for ear infections can include: antibiotics, ear drops, over the counter pain relievers and drainage tubes.
