Otitis media

What is Otitis media?

Otitis media is a bacterial or viral infection of the middle ear common in children. It may cause a high temperature, inability to feed in babies, lost of balance, coughing and a runny nose. Treatment involves pain relief. There is no evidence that antibiotics are of help unless there are serious underlying health problems, the child is under 3 months or there is no improvement after 4 days.
