Can an ear infection be a sign of something more serious?


It’s important to have an ear infection checked out by a professional. Sometimes the signs and symptoms of an ear infection are those of another condition, and other times an ear infection or repeated infections can lead to hearing problems, a hole in the eardrum, or other serious complications. Seek professional diagnosis and prompt treatment if:

• The symptoms last for over 24 hours
• The pain is severe
• There’s a discharge of fluid, pus, or blood from the ear
• A child under six months of age has the symptoms
• Your infant or toddler is irritable or sleepless after having a cold or another upper respiratory issue

At an urgent care clinic like ours, diagnosis and treatment can be provided right away, right on the spot, with no appointment necessary. This means you can come to see us here at PrimeHealth Urgent Care right away, even today!

What usually causes ear infections?


Ear infections are caused by bacteria or a virus in the middle ear. Sometimes this happens due to another illness, like a cold, the flu, or an allergy. You might think a bacterium or virus isn’t a big deal, but with the ear, it can be and lead to serious complications. Generally, though, ear infections aren’t serious, but it’s important to be careful with them.

Children are most at risk of getting ear infections, especially children six months to two years old, as their immune systems are still developing.

Do I need antibiotics for an ear infection?


It’s necessary to have an ear infection addressed by a professional. Sometimes treatment isn’t necessary, but often it is necessary and can prevent complications. If your child has an ear infection, their age and the severity of the symptoms are factors in determining what kind of treatment is necessary.

In some cases, a doctor will recommend over-the-counter or prescription pain medication, while in other cases, a doctor will provide antibiotic therapy. This treatment can clear up an infection quickly, but it’s important to note that even if your or your child’s symptoms clear up, you must use the antibiotic as directed and take all the medicine. This will help make sure the infection doesn’t come back or the bacteria doesn’t become resistant to medication.

If a child has regular infections, the child should be monitored. Diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring are all services we can provide here at PrimeHealth Urgent Care!
