What should I do if my child has otitis media?Mom must pay attention

Otitis media is one of the common diseases in childhood, 70% to 80% of which are caused by colds.If the parents do not pay enough attention and do not take active treatment, it may cause the baby’s hearing loss and affect the child’s learning and development.

Otitis media refers to inflammatory lesions that involve all or part of the middle ear (including the Eustachian tube, tympanum, tympanic sinus, and mastoid air chamber). Otitis media is more common in children.According to the different causes, it can be divided into two categories: non-suppurative and suppurative.Usually our most common otitis media is suppurative otitis media.

2. Surgical treatment: For adults with poor conservative treatment, tympanic membrane puncture can be considered to remove effusion. For those who cannot cooperate with puncture and aspiration or repetitive effusion, tympanostomy and catheterization should be considered, if there are adenoids at the same time. Hypertrophy requires adenoidectomy at the same time.The indwelling time of the snorkel is generally 3 to 12 months, and most children can discharge the snorkel out of the external auditory canal by themselves.
