Ear infection in both ears, 7 days on antibiotics, still giddy and headache. How long can these symptoms continue


The headache may possibly indicate something serious is developing. Does your doctor know about it, the severity, and how long the headache has been present? If not, it is important info.

Do you have a fever running? That is something you can find out at home. Especially if so, I would go back to the doc immediately and ask how you can be relieved of anxiety that the infecton has spread beyond the middle ear.

Yes, you are on antibiotics, but maybe the doc can review the dosage, and type you are taking.

Could be an inner ear infection. Which will upset balance. For treatment antibiotics are usually used. I would highly recommend a vet as antibiotics are only available via prescription.

I put ear plugs in and when I took them out I felt pain in my ear and now it pops like I have water in it but don't


Pressure through the eustachian tube that joins your inner ear and your throat and sinus is not relieving pressure. You may have swelling or a mild infection or cold. Be gentle with it. If you can relieve the pressure of changing elevation on mountains or flying its the same thing. Otherwise your on your way to the doctor to have them checked for swelling.

What are the signs of ear infections in kids?


Ear infections are very common in kids and are very painful. So if you think your child has an ear infection or if they seem unwell and have been unusually miserable, crying etc for a while, you should get a check up with your doctor.

Aside from regular symptoms of just not feeling well - ear infections can cause a temperature, intense ear and head pain and sometimes kids touch and pull on their ears which is usually a good indication of the problem.

What is Otitis Media? The doctor wrote it on my kids evaluation form. I thought he said she had an ear infection so I am worried now.


Don't worry - otitis media is just the official fancy way of saying middle ear infection. These kind of infections are very common in young children and babies and you should definitely consult with a doctor who may prescribe anti biotics, even though there is now a lot of debate as to whether anti biotics actually speed up the passing of ear infections or whether they pass by themselves.

What can I do to help prevent my dog from getting an ear infection? I clean his ears regularly; however he still seems to be getting infections.


I found a great natural remedy that works in preventing ear infections in dogs. I use it for my dogs and they have been ok for almost a year now.

THE FOLLOWING ALL NATURAL REMEDY
PREVENTS EAR INFECTIONS! This recipe is not meant to be used with Zymox. This should only be used once the ears are completely healed.

Keep in mind that it "will not" cure an existing ear infection.

Once you get your dog's ears to a healthy state either by using Zymox like we recommended or with the help of an antibiotic from your veterinarian, start using the following remedy weekly to prevent future infections. This works by raising the Ph level in the dogs ears.

Purchase an eye dropper bottle and the following ingredients
from your local pharmacy.

2 Tablespoons of Boric Acid
4 ounces of Rubbing Alcohol
1 Tablespoon of Glycerine

Shake the bottle before each use to thoroughly mix. Place a small eyedropper full into each ear. Cup the dog's ear and massage gently. Allow the dog to shake his head and gently blot dry any excess on the outside of the ear.
Do this weekly.

If ANY IRRITATION occurs - STOP using the recipe immediately!

Is there a doctor to a person who can't hear


Hi there,

Have a blessed day.

When it comes to diagnosing and treating ear problems, doctors basically have three levels of "ear expertise." They are from least to most-primary care physicians (PCP), ear, nose & throat doctors (ENTs) and otologists/neurotologists. Each has their own niche.
1. Medical Doctors/Primary Care Physicians (MD/PCP) Often your first contact with the medical community is with a standard Medical Doctor (MD), often called a Primary Care Physician (PCP), General Practitioner (GP) or Family Doctor. These doctors have no specialized training in treating ear problems. However, you often need to go to one of these doctors in order to get a referral to an ear specialist such as an ENT or otologist.
Family doctors normally treat ear conditions of the outer ear and ear canal such as removing ear wax or treating infections in the ear canal. For problems in the middle and inner ear, they should immediately refer you to the appropriate ear specialist.
2. Ears, Nose & Throat Doctors (ENT) The middle level of "ear expertise" is the Ear, Nose & Throat doctor, commonly referred to as an ENT. The fancy term for these doctors is otolaryngologist (OH-toe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist) or sometimes by the ******-twisting name of otorhinolaryngologist (OH-toe-RYE-noe-lar-ing-JOL-uh-jist). (When you break this name down, it is easier to understand and pronounce. Oto-ear, rhino-nose and larynx-throat). Sometimes these doctors are called EENTs (eyes, ears, nose and throat doctors).
ENTs are medical doctors that have taken further training and specialized in problems of the ears, nose and throat.
Despite the name, ENTs do not spend a lot of their time working with ears. One otologist told me that he estimated the average ENT only spent about 5% of his time with ears. Thus you cannot expect them to be experts on many kinds of ear problems.
ENTs generally specialize in problems of the middle ear-typically middle ear infections and medical problems of the middle ear. This may include surgical procedures for things like otosclerosis, or removing middle ear tumors such as cholesteatomas. They may also perform CI surgery.
3. Otologists (Neurotologists) At the top of the pile is the otologist (oh-TOL-uh-jist) and neurotologist (NEU-roe-oh-TOL-uh-jist). Otologists and neurotologists are medical doctors who have trained as ENTs and then completed additional studies is the sub-specialty of otology (or neurotology). These are the real ear experts and are the doctors that know the most about inner ear problems.
If you experience sudden hearing loss and there is no obvious reason, these are the doctors that most likely will be able to help you. In fact, otologists/neurotologists are the only doctors (as a whole) that seem to recognize the true emergency nature of sudden hearing loss. Unfortunately, there are not very many otologists/neurotologists in the country.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using fixya.

My son is 7 years old and he has be continueously having mucus running through his nose. Sometimes he sort of cracks his throat as if he had sometime in there too remove. We have seen some Drs. already...


Sounds like he has allergies. What could he be allergic to? Do you have pets that are in doors? You can take him to an ear nose & throat doctor and have them test him for allergies. They usually take a marker and label each spot, then ***** the skin on his back with up to 100 different substances. They wait a few days and have you bring him back to see what breaks out and where. Then they create a serum that he takes in injections to make him immune to whatever is bothering him and it goes away. The ****** on his back do not hurt. I have had it done to myself.

Allergies are non bacterial. If the doctors are giving him antibiotics and the medication is making it go away for a bit and then it returns again in two to three weeks then he may have an inner ear infection or a sinus infection. Inner ear infections take up to six weeks of antibiotics to clear up the problem. Sinus infections take up to a month. If you stop taking the medication before its cleared up all the way, then it just keeps coming back again.

If I knew what the medications were that they gave him then I could help you further.

He could have a problem with adnoids. If this is the case then he would be swallowing and "snorting" all the time. What I mean by snorting is attempting to clear his throat loudly. He may need his tonsils removed or possibly his adnoids?
