Ear Infections

An ear infection is a bacterial infection of the middle ear (the space behind the eardrum).  The main symptom is earache and muffled hearing.  A fever is present with almost half of ear infections, due to pressure and bulging of the eardrum fro trapped, infected fluid.

In 5-10% of children, the pressure causes the eardrum to rupture and drain yellow or cloudy fluid.
