Otitis Media - Do's And Dont's

Teach children to cover their mouths with a disposable tissue when they cough and blow their noses with disposable tissues so that the germs are not transmitted to others.

Do not allow children to share toys that they put in their mouths.

Make sure all children and adults use good hand washing practices.

Do not use instruments or cotton-tipped applicators to cean ears.

Breast-feed your baby during the first six to 12 months of life. Antibodies in breast milk reduce the rate of ear infections.

I have a chronic middle ear infection that only appears in my left ear. It feels like there is a on and off switch in my middle ear that goes on and off. Will antibiotics help?
