Do you have an earache? Have you noticed fluid draining from your ear, or are you having a hard time hearing? These are the hallmark symptoms of a middle ear infection (acute otitis media), which can develop when viruses or bacteria enter the air-filled cavity behind the eardrum. Ear infection symptoms in children may also include a fever, a headache, difficulty balancing, and loss of appetite.
Fortunately, if you are in Chicago, Illinois, you can rely on Jovive Health for ear infection treatment. Our South Loop clinic offers urgent care for ear pain and a wide array of other non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries.
Ear Infection Treatment Options
Ear infection treatment will vary from one person to another depending on what caused the infection (for example, antibiotics could be used to treat a bacterial ear infection, but not a viral ear infection). When you visit Jovive Health for an earache, we will provide you with customized treatment recommendations, possibly including a prescription for antibiotics, pain medication, or anesthetic ear drops.
