Ear infections are a common occurrence in children, with Australian government sources reporting that 4 out of 5 kids will experience an ear infection during their childhood. As some of us may know, the ear is made up of 3 main parts. These are the outer ear, middle ear, and (you guessed it) inner ear. These parts of the ear can become infected via bacteria, fungi, or a virus. Many kids are prone to middle ear infections.

What Are the Symptoms of Ear Infections?

If you or a member of your family is suffering from an earache, itchiness of the ear, mild deafness, a discharge from the ear, headache, fever, blisters on the ear, vertigo, loss of appetite, or unexplained noises within the ear, you may well have an ear infection. Your ear is connected via the Eustachian tube to the back of your nose, this tube is involved in air pressure equalisation within the ear and distributing middle ear secretions into the throat. Any blockage of this tube results in ear infections and related symptoms.

Ear Infection Causes

There are many possible causes for ear infections. Some of these are: respiratory tract infections; blocked Eustachian tube; sudden air pressure changes (air flight travel); swimming in polluted waters; cleft palate; build up of water in ears after swimming or bathing; and scratching ear tissue via overcleaning ears.
