Earache and ear infections are a common problem, particularly in children. Read more for advice about treatments and common causes and preventions for earaches and ear infections.
Earache is cited as the most common reason for a parent to call a doctor out of hours for their child. It will often be the result of an ear infection. Adults are less likely to experience earache and ear infections than children. Earache can be a sharp, dull or burning ear pain that comes and goes or is constant.
Ear infection is common in children, but can occur at any age. The main symptoms are earache and feeling unwell. Ear infections are explained in this video with Dr. Sarah Jarvis.
Ear infection is common in children but can occur at any age. The main symptoms are earache and feeling unwell. Painkillers are the main treatment. Antibiotics are not usually needed but are prescribed in some cases. The infection usually clears within a few days.
