What is an ear infection?

An ear infection consists of inflammation in the middle ear. Though frequently associated with young children and infants, ear infections are also common in adults. In fact, they are a typical side effect of the common cold and flu.

If you suspect your child has an ear infection, you should be on the lookout for signs such as:

  • Tugging at the ear
  • Crying and discomfort when lying down
  • Decreased appetite
  • Ear drainage
  • Fever
  • Poor sleep and irritability

Symptoms of ear infections in adults include:

  • A sense of fullness inside of the ear
  • Ear drainage
  • Muffled or diminished hearing
  • Nausea
  • Sharp, sudden or continuous earache
