All About Ear Infections

There is no such thing as a "little" injury; even something as small as a paper cut can be painful. Infections of the ear are no different, and its appearance can be a challenge to deal with throughout the day. Ear infections may be of bacterial or viral origin, and often occur due to allergies, a cold, sinus infections, mucous buildup or swollen tonsils, although other factors exist. The ear is also connected to the teeth and jaw, and occasionally, if an injury or infection were to occur in any of these areas, such as tooth pain, an ear infection may also develop. 

Types of Ear Infections: 

Outer Ear Infection: Also known as "swimmer's ear" or otitis externa, this painful condition involves the opening of the ear and ear canal. An infection results from excessive moisture from frequent swimming, showering, or bathing. The water sits in the canal, becoming an excellent breeding ground for bacteria. The infection can also develop if the canal is injured due to scratching or placing objects (earphones, cotton swabs) in the delicate areas, causing inflammation. Risk factors include:

  • Swimming in water with high levels of bacteria
  • Aggressive ear cleaning
  • Use of certain devices like a hearing aid
  • Narrow ear canal

Acute Middle Ear Infections: Although this form of infection tends to occur in children because they have smaller Eustachian tubes, adults are not immune. It can happen when something prevents fluid from properly draining out the middle ear. Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae are the usual bacterial offenders. Adults are more likely to have this type of ear infection during the winter compared to the spring or summer. Risk factors include:

  • Immunosuppression¬†
  • First- or second-Hand Smoking
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Craniofacial defects (Down's Syndrome)
  • Eustachian tube dysfuction

Antibiotics Aren't Actually the Treatment of Choice

It seems to make sense to treat an infection with antibiotics, but this choice should be re-evaluated. The Institute of Quality and Efficiency in Health Care found that many cases of Baltic Amber Necklace - Lava Rock Amber Necklace Arthritis Carpal Tunnel Polished Cognac Or Raw Rainbow 19 Inch Teen Or Adult Essential Oils Aromatherapyear infections resolved on its own.

When Ear Infection is the Problem 

New and veteran parents often do not struggle understanding when it is time to change or feed their baby. Noticing when their baby is sick with a fever or needs to go to sleep are not too complicated either. However, raising a little one is far from easy, and there are plenty of instances where they continuously keep us guessing. One of the last things most parents would suspect happening to their child is an ear infection although nearly 75% of kids get it by the time they are three. In fact, ear infections are the most common diagnosis found in kids after the common cold. Kids under three are most likely to get it because of their underdeveloped immune system. Sometimes the infection can appear on its own or be accompanied by another complication, so it helps to monitor your child to determine which of the two it is. 

Three Types of Ear Infections Image result for ear infection kids

  • Acute Otitis Media (AOM) : Infection of the middle ear is seen in kids the most. The central ear is red, swollen, and infected due to fluid being trapped behind the eardrum. This results in ear pain, and it's possible for a child to develop a fever.
  • Otitis Media with Effusion (OME) : Kids may get this type of ear infection after AOM has run its course, and fluid gets trapped behind the eardrum. There are no distinct symptoms, but it is often diagnozed when doctors notice fluid draining behind the ear using an instrument.
  • Chronic Otitis Media with Effusion (COME): This is a more severe version of OME where fluid remains trapped in the middle ear for long periods of time or it continuously recurs. No active infection exists in either, but COME makes it tough for a child to stave off infections. Their hearing may also become compromised.

Symptoms to look For in Ear Infections

When an ear infection exists, it often occurs when the child is not yet able to speak so parents and caregivers have to rely of signs that present itself to let you know something is up with their ear.

  • Trouble with sleeping¬†Image result for ear infection kids symptoms
  • Running a high temperature

  • Less appetite
  • Clear fluid drains out the ear
  • Pulling or Tugging of the ear
  • Foul/Unpleasant odor from the ar
  • Trouble responding to or listening to quiet sounds
  • Issues with attaining balance

The Ugly Side of Ear Infections

Many parents do not treat ear infections out of malice, but because of their lack of knowledge that it exists. In the event an ear infection is not taken care of, there is a high risk the eardrum will rupture. They seldom ever form, but when rupture do occur, they fortunately heal rather well although it may take a few days or weeks. If ear infections happen often, it can lead to scarring of the eardrum and hearing loss. If that is left untreated, mastoiditis, a rare skull infection present behind the ear, can form. Ensuring ear infections are under control when they do happen ensure a safe and rapid recovery.

Baltic Essentials Amber is Natural Medicine

Giving Our Body the Medicine it Needs

Our body loves to take in the goodies it receives by breaking it down for use through what we know as metabolism. We all know that nutrients in the form of fats, carbs, protein, water, vitamins, and minerals are all important to keep our bodies running in optimal condition while aiding in the prevention of many diseases, but could there be a few things within that list we aren't aware of that is beneficial? This is such the case for succinic acid as many individuals are completely unaware of its healing power on the body although it has been used century after century.
