3 Reasons to Choose Prime Urgent Care for Ear Infection Treatments

Ear Infection Treatments at Prime Urgent Care

At Prime Urgent Care, here are the general steps we take in treating a typical ear infection:

Step 1: Diagnosis

An accurate diagnosis of the “type” of ear infection you or your child has is essential for an effective treatment.

Step 2: Treatment

Antibiotics: If the infection is bacterial, our providers may prescribe antibiotics to kill the bacteria causing the infection. It is important to take the entire course of antibiotics, even if the symptoms improve before completing the medication.

Ear drops: If the infection is in the outer ear, our providers may prescribe ear drops that contain antibiotics, steroids, or antifungal medications.

Pain management: Ear infections often cause pain and discomfort. Pain relievers can help to manage pain.

Warm compress: Applying a warm compress to the affected ear can help to relieve pain and promote drainage.

Common Causes of Ear Infections

Ear infections are usually caused by bacterial or viral infections. The infection occurs when the middle ear, the space behind the eardrum, becomes inflamed. Here are several factors that can contribute to an ear infection:

Common Symptoms of Ear Infections

Middle ear infection (acute otitis media) – Results from an accumulation of fluid and infection in the space behind the eardrum (called the middle ear). This type of infection is more common in children than adults, but it can occur at any age.

Symptoms include:

Swimmer’s Ear (otitis external) – An infection of the ear canal (the passage that leads from the outer ear to the eardrum) caused by water that remains in the ear after swimming or other water-related activities.

If you spend a lot of time in swimming pools during the summer or for sports competitions, ear infections are a common condition that needs to be treated.

  • Are ear infections contagious?

    Ear infections are usually not contagious although they should be treated to reduce the risk of complications from the infection.
  • Can an ear infection go away on its own without treatment?

    Some middle ear infections do resolve on their own, although it’s recommended (especially with children) to get immediate treatment for pain in and around the ear for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Don’t wait for the infection to resolve itelf as this can cause further damage and more intense symptoms.

  • How long does it take for an ear infection to resolve?

    Timeframes will vary based on the type and severity of the infection plus the age and health of the patient. Generally, mild ear infections can be resolved with antibiotics in about a week. More severe infections may take longer (2-3 weeks).

  • Can ear infections cause permanent hearing loss?

    In some cases, severe ear infections can result in permanent hearing loss when not properly treated. Prompt and appropriate ear infection treatments will usually prevent permanent hearing loss.
