Earache. Ear drainage.
Maybe it’s an ear infection.
Ear infections aren’t usually hard to diagnose. Most start with an earache and are often accompanied by a fever.
Symptoms of an ear infection in an adult include (but are not limited to) earache, a feeling of fullness in the ear or muffled hearing, and in the case of a ruptured eardrum, warm drainage from the ear canal.
Symptoms of an ear infection in a non-verbal child can be more challenging. These may include signs of discomfort, such as (but are not limited) tugging at the ear, trouble sleeping, fever, restlessness, change in appetite and irritability.
Sure, some ear infections clear up on their own, but some don’t. If you have an ear infection with a fever, or you’re still not feeling better, stop by your local vybe urgent care and be seen today.
