Ear infections affect up to 75 percent of children in the United States by the time they reach the age of three. Children with ear infections may experience an earache, fever, ear discharge, headache, and dizziness. While most ear infections go away on their own within 3 days, some persist, and could cause long-term damage to the middle ear if not treated. Depending on the severity of your child’s condition, ear infection treatment may include antibiotics, steroids, placement of ventilation tubes, or surgery.
