Hi Munna, an ear infection is an infection of the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Sometimes it is called acute otitis media. Children are more likely than adults to get ear infections. Some people are prone to having multiple ear infections. This can cause hearing problems and other serious complications. An ear infection is caused by a bacterium or virus in the middle ear. Signs and symptoms common in children include: ear pain, especially when lying down, trouble sleeping, trouble hearing or responding to sounds, fever, drainage of fluid from the ear, headache, loss of appetite etc. This ear infection often results from another illness: cold, flu or allergy, that causes congestion and swelling of the nasal passages, throat and eustachian tubes. swelling of the adenoids may block the tubes. This can lead to middle ear infection. Ear infections that happen again and again can lead to serious complications. Mild hearing loss that comes and goes is fairly common with an ear infection, but it usually gets better after the infection clears. If hearing is temporarily or permanently impaired in infants and toddlers, they may experience delays in speech, social and developmental skills. Untreated ear infections that don’t respond well to treatment can spread to nearby tissues. Rarely, serious middle ear infections spread to other tissues in the skull, including the brain or the membranes surrounding the brain (meningitis).
