Ear Infection – Treatments and Drugs

By July 17, 2020July 22nd, 2020Blog, Ear Infection

Treatment of ear infections is based on the severity of the infection. Treatment also depends on age, health, and medical history. Some infections will heal without the use of antibiotics. All it takes is treating the pain and allowing the body to heal itself.

Some suggestions are:

  • Applying a warm cloth or warm water bottle to the infected ear.
  • Pain-relieving ear drops prescribed by a doctor or taken at the pharmacy can also be applied.
  • Medications are taken from a pharmacy such as ‘ibuprofen’ for relieving pain and fever. Children are not recommended to take aspirin.

Usually, the treatment consists of antibiotics for seven to ten days.

Ten percent of children do not respond to medication in the first 48 hours. In about 40 percent of cases, children are left with fluid in the middle ear even after the treatment is over, which can cause temporary hearing loss that lasts for a few weeks.

In most children, the fluid disappears or resorbs on its own. Kids with recurring bouts of acute otitis may have an ear tube placed into the ear during surgery to forbid fluid to drain from the middle ear.

If the problem is a bulging eardrum and the child is experiencing huge pain, a ‘myringotomy’ or a surgical incision of the eardrum must be performed to release the pus.

The eardrum takes usually a week to heal.
