Ear infections are known as earaches for a good reason: the conditions can be very uncomfortable. Mild cases are very common, and children in particular often contract middle ear infections because they are more susceptible due to the size of their inner ears and immune systems that are not as strong.
Middle ear infections, or otitis media, are characterized by germs that grow in a person’s middle ear, and they often occur as a result of common cold, the flu, or other types of respiratory infections.
Adults can identify if they may have an ear infection if they experience any ear pain, drainage of fluid from the ear, or diminished hearing. When it comes to children, here are some common symptoms to be aware of:
Long-term problems related to ear infections — persistent fluids in the middle ear, persistent infections or frequent infections — can cause hearing problems and other serious complications. Since young children are more susceptible and undergoing development, identifying and treating an ear infection early is crucial.
