Ear Infection Treatment

If you or your child are suffering from an ear infection, it is important to visit an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor for an exam. If an ear infection goes untreated, it can lead to long term hearing loss. At Allen ENT, we can provide you with an in depth diagnostic exam to find out the cause of the infection. Allen ENT is a full service Ear, Nose, and Throat medical office serving children and adults from Allentown, PA and Bethlehem, PA. We offer comprehensive care and treatment for patients experiencing a range of different conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat, head, and neck.

Understanding Middle Ear Infections

Middle ear infections are most common in children under 5 years of age. They occur when bacteria or viruses from the throat travel to the ear where the infection spreads. It can be very painful for a child and can impede their ability to hear. When the Eustachian tube in the ear becomes swollen due to the infection, fluid build up occurs. If the fluid is not removed in time, the eardrum can become damaged. Timely treatment of an ear infection is necessary to avoid any long term damage to hearing that could also affect speech development. At Allen ENT, we can provide your child with the remedies needed to alleviate their ear infection in a timely manner.
