Disease prevention and treatment

The human ear is made of:

The inner ear.

Middle ear.

The outer ear.

Infection of ear can affect any of these areas and one area can generally infect the rest. Often external otitis affects the outer ear; at times it occurs after cold or flu or some other types of upper respiratory infection.

The area from the eardrum to the outer part get inflamed and is very painful, occasionally a fever may crop up; Otitis media affects the part inside the eardrum and all the tiny bones. The air pressure is regulated in this region by the auditory tube running from the ear to the back of the nasal cavity, whenever bacteria or a virus gets in this part; the different parts get inflamed with fluid, leading to pressure and exceptionally sharp pain in the ear with fever. If the infection is left unattended it can cause perforation in eardrum allowing all pressure out and alleviating pain, although a perforated eardrum connote hearing loss and fluid discharge. This sort of ear infection is very widespread in infants as a result of the position of the baby while feeding allowing milk bacteria to grow in the auditory tube.
