Ear infections are common and can generally be cleared with proper medication…
There are three predominant types of ear infections that affect many Australian adults and children each year. These three strains of ear infections include otitis media (middle ear infection), otitis interna (inner ear infection or ‘labyrinthitis’) and otitis externa (outer ear infection or ‘swimmer’s ear’)
Common symptoms of an ear infection include…
- Discharge within the ear
- Hearing loss
- Ringing in the ears
If you suffer from any of the above symptoms it is important to have a qualified medical practitioner assess your ears and if necessary, refer you to an ENT specialist such as our ENT Surgeons of Melbourne.
