What is Otitis Media?
Otitis Media is characterized by inflammation or infection of the middle ear that mostly affects the children. The inflammation is often a result of other infections that lead to sore throats, colds, breathing difficulties. These infections, which can either be bacterial or viral will then spread to the middle ear causing the inflammation.
The primary reason behind the disease affecting the children more than the adults is because the immune systems in kids and infants are not developed fully making them more susceptible to the disease. That does not mean that the adults will not contract the disease.
The major symptoms observed in kids suffering from Otitis media are
- Trouble sleeping
- Consistent irritation in the ears making them tug or pull at the ears regularly
- Ear pain and ache
- Mild to severe fever
- Fluids from the ear
- Difficulty in hearing or increase in inattentiveness
If the infection worsens, child may experience severe pain and can also lead to some other serious health complications to the nearby organs including brain. Hearing loss is temporary and usually goes away with the infection but if left untreated, it can lead to hearing impairment on a permanent basis. Also untreated otitis media can hinder the speech and language development.
Almost every child will experience this problem before or by the age of 3 years. Sometimes the symptoms may be less severe or too mild to be observed but in some cases, they need doctor’s attention.
- Underdeveloped or developing immune system seen in infant and kids
- Viral and bacterial infections
- Blocking of Eustachian tube that connects the upper part of the throat to middle ear
- Accumulation of mucous in the Eustachian tube causing inflammation
