Ear infection

Ear infection (middle ear)
For acute otitis media, it affects the mucous lining covering the middle ear cavity. It is a very common disease among generations under the age of five, and it causes nearly 40% of all paediatric visits. This disease often appears as a continuation of upper respiratory infection that leads to rapid accumulation of inflammatory secretions in the middle ear, decreased hearing capacity, severe ear pain, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea in infants. The disease often begins as a result of the entry of bacteria or viruses from the upper pharynx, via the Eustachian tube, into the middle ear cavity. There is no consensus in the medical literature about the causes of this inflammation. The debate is over whether the cause is bacteria or a virus. There are complications from inflammation: a permanent hole in the eardrum. Reduced hearing capacity, membrane inflammation and damage to the hearing bone and the seventh nerve that drives facial muscles, encephalitis, brain abscess and venous drainage in the brain. It should be noted that recovery from acute otitis media is rapid and does not leave permanent damage. Ear infection The treatment for external otitis is by giving the patient some of the simple types of antibiotics. Pain can be alleviated by placing a little warm olive oil on his cotton and placing it on the tip of the ear, until the pain is absorbed. Treatment of otitis media usually requires medical intervention and sometimes surgical procedures to withdraw the amount of water behind the eardrum, while giving pain reliever and itching caused by bacteria and widespread antibiotics. Treatment for the inner ear: It is under medical supervision and care, according to the severity of the condition and the sensitivity of the affected area. In this case, anti-inflammatory needles are given for their rapid effect, so that the body returns to its balance quickly and is (a complete course) with strong pain relievers. There are several ways to avoid ear infections, including: Caring for good ear hygiene using ear cotton with care when using, drying the ear well from water after a bath and in the winter in particular because of the presence of moisture in the body that helps the growth of bacteria in the ear
