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
Poor sleep and irritability
Symptoms of ear infections in adults include:
A sense of fullness inside of the ear
Muffled or diminished hearing
Sharp, sudden or continuous earache
