Otitis media is an inflammatory disease that affects all or part of the middle ear (including the Eustachian tube, tympanum, tympanic sinus, and mastoid air chamber), and it is more common in children.If acute suppurative otitis media is not treated promptly and thoroughly, most of them may turn into chronic otitis media, and bacteria may repeatedly invade the middle ear cavity and cause recurrent otitis media.It often occurs in children under the age of 8, and also occurs in people of other age groups.

Once the body’s resistance is reduced, it will lead to recurrence of otitis media.Broadband mini hearing aids can be worn with thin sound tubes and open earplugs. The appearance is small and concealed, and the wearing comfort is high. At the same time, air can circulate freely inside and outside the ear canal to prevent bacteria from accumulating in the ear canal, thereby reducing the possibility of recurrence of otitis media.
