Earaches can occur for a variety of reasons. Some people experience ear pain while battling a cold or sinus infection, while others may have allergies, ear wax buildup, or an eardrum rupture. Still, the majority of people who seek earache treatment have an ear infection, which can affect the outer, middle, or inner ear. Ear infections may develop at any time, but they commonly occur following respiratory illnesses that cause swelling in the nasal passageways and throat, as well as extended periods of swimming (swimmer’s ear).
Consider visiting UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Keystone Point for earache treatment if you or your child has:
- Ear pain that lasts for more than one day
- Severe ear pain
- Bloody discharge, fluid, or pus coming out of the ear
It’s also important to seek immediate medical care if earache symptoms are present in a child less than 6 months old. Signs of ear pain in young children include irritability following a cold or upper respiratory infection, as well as ear tugging, sleeplessness, and reduced appetite.
