Ear Infection Treatment

Kolkata ENT Care – Dr. Rahul Sarkar ( One of the best ENT surgeon in Kolkata providing reliable consultation)

Ear infection treatment depends on age, the severity of the infection, and most importantly the nature of the infection (i.e. the infection is first-time, ongoing infection or repeating infection, or if fluid remains in the middle ear for a long period of time.)

Your healthcare provider will recommend medications to relieve your pain and fever. If the ear infection is mild, depending on the age, your healthcare provider may choose to wait a few days to see if the infection goes away on its own before prescribing an antibiotic. They may prescribe antibiotics if your ear infection is bacterial, chronic, or doesn’t appear to be improving.

Surgery is the ultimate option if your ear infection doesn’t get eliminated with the usual medical treatments or if you have many ear infections over a short period.Most often, ear tubes get placed in your ears to allow fluid to drain out. These tubes get inserted into your eardrums. They eventually fall out and the holes heal over. Sometimes these holes need to be closed surgically.
