Ear infections occur when the tiny tubes that run from the back of the throat to the ear (eustachian tubes) are swollen or blocked. This creates a backup of fluid. The condition is common, especially in babies and children, and is often caused by a bacterial or viral infection within the inner, outer, or middle of the ear.
When ear infections happen, patients can suffer from dizziness, balance issues, impaired hearing, and ear pain. They can be debilitating for adults and kids alike; however, turning to prescribed antibiotics might not always be the best solution.
