MIDDLE EAR INFECTIONS – INTRODUCTION

Middle ear infections are frequently not given enough attention. If a child complains of earache and has perhaps a slight runny discharge which turns to pus, we put the child in a warm bed and think our duty is done. Unfortunately, however, the correct treatment is overlooked. The reason why so many people are hard of hearing and in some cases are deaf in one ear is because an inflammation of the middle ear in childhood had been neglected. Ear infections can also affect the brain, and the eyes may suffer if the infection becomes chronic. Neighbouring organs, as well as those in different parts of the body, can also be harmed. It is therefore imperative that no time is lost in treating the ear when the first symptoms of this serious condition appear, and that treatment is continued until the patient is cured.
