What’s the Best Treatment for an Ear Infection?

The GoodRx Pharmacist - June 16, 2014

Ear infections are caused by either a bacteria or a virus. The infection leads to inflammation, usually in the middle part of the ear. Young children are often more prone to ear infections because their ears aren’t yet fully developed, though adults may also get ear infections.

Where do most ear infections occur?

Ear infections most often occur in the middle part of the ear.

What are signs and symptoms of an ear infection?

Ear infections in children as well as adults sometimes include symptoms such as:

  • Pulling at one or both ears (due to ear pain)
  • Crying
  • Fever
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Drainage from the ear
  • Reduced/fuzzy hearing

How are ear infections treated?

Treatment with an oral pain reliever like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin (ibuprofen) usually helps alleviate fever and pain within a few hours. See More
