By the age of six, almost 95 percent of all children will have had otitis media, or a middle ear infection. Ear infections are more common in children than in adults because children's eustachian tubes are smaller and more horizontal, which hampers drainage. Middle ear infections occur because of an infection by a bacteria or a virus, usually as a result of a cold. Inflammation causes pus, which presses on the eardrum, causing great pain. Chronic infections may occur when the eustachian tube becomes persistently blocked due to repeated ear infections, allergies, adenoid problems, or some sort of trauma to the ear.

Persistent ear infections may lead to a ruptured eardrum and eventual hearing loss. Doctors prescribe antibiotics for ear infections because they kill the bacteria and can prevent the infection from spreading to the brain or the bone around the ears. Kids generally will feel better faster when they are given antibiotics. However, research indicates that most simple ear infections can clear up on their own within four to seven days, although the child will be feverish and in pain during that time.

How can you tell if your child has a middle ear infection? Ear infections are almost always preceded by a cold with a runny nose. Older children, of course, can tell you their ears hurt. Little ones, though, will suddenly become very fussy, day or night, and wake up more often at night. They also will have a low-grade fever, not much appetite, and may or may not tug at their ears. It may be uncomfortable for them to lie flat.

Tammy's Notes: Do not administer herbal remedies if you suspect your child's eardrum has perforated. When in doubt, always contact your doctor or health-care practitioner
