Ear Aches and Infections
Ear infections are very common. They develop when bacteria or viruses infect the body, causing swelling and, in certain cases, a fluid build-up. There are numerous forms of ear infections that affect different areas of the ear and have distinct consequences. Our clinicians can go over your symptoms with you and, if feasible, determine the sort of ear infection you have. If required, they can prescribe the appropriate medicine to treat. Outer ear infections (also known as otitis externa or “swimmer’s ear”) cause inflammation, swelling, and discomfort of the ear canal. Middle ear infections (also known as otitis media) causes build-up of fluid behind the eardrum and inflammation (swelling and redness).
