Ear Infection (Acute Otitis Media)

A middle ear infection is a problem that happens when germs grow in the space behind your eardrum. This often happens after a cold or a throat infection. It can cause ear pain, fever, and trouble hearing.

Nonprescription pain medicine may be all you need. Some children may need to take antibiotics.
