Middle Ear Infection in Children
This two-page illustrated handout educates parents and other caregivers about middle ear infection in children. Also called otitis media, middle ear infection occurs when the tubes inside the child’s ears become clogged with fluid. The document lists signs of middle ear infection, and identifies other symptoms that older children may have. It provides ways parents can prevent an ear infection in their child, and recommends seeing the child’s doctor for care if symptoms last more than two days.
