Treatment for Ear  Infections

Most mild ear infections clear up without intervention. Some  of the following methods are effective in relieving the symptoms of a mild ear infection:
 
  • Applying a warm cloth to the affected ear
  • Taking over-the-counter pain medication such as  ibuprofen or acetaminophen
  • Using over-the-counter or prescription ear drops  to relieve pain
  • Taking over-the-counter decongestants such as  pseudoephedrine

If your symptoms get worse or do not improve, you should  schedule an appointment with your doctor. He or she may prescribe antibiotics  if your ear infection is chronic or does not appear to be improving. If a child  under the age of 2 presents with ear infection symptoms, a doctor will likely  give him or her antibiotics as well. It is important to finish your entire  course of antibiotics if they are prescribed.
 Surgery may be an option if your ear infection is not  eliminated with the usual medical treatments or if you have many ear infections  over a short period of time. Most often, tubes are placed in the ears to allow fluid to drain out. In cases that involve enlarged adenoids, surgical removal  of the adenoids may be necessary.

 Medicine for Ear  Infections

An ear infection is often caused by a virus, in which case  the only relief doctors can offer is treatment of the symptoms. To ease the  pain of an ear infection, your doctor may recommend a pain reliever, typically  acetaminophen or ibuprofen, which also helps reduce a fever. Aspirin should be  avoided in children because of the threat of Reye's syndrome. Pain can also be  reduced by using gentle heat from a heating pad, but be very careful when using  heating pads with children.
 Sometimes, it is difficult for your doctor to tell with an  otoscope alone if the ear infection is caused by a virus or bacteria, so deciding on a proper course of treatment isn't always easy. A debate over using  antibiotics (bacteria-killing drugs) to treat middle ear infections arose in  the 1990ís as more bacteria became resistant to antibiotics. Some doctors  initially treat only the symptoms of an ear infection, without antibiotics, a  response that has been supported by several studies.
