Ear Infections & Glue Ear


The ear is made up of three distinct parts: the outer ear, the middle ear (behind the ear drum) and the inner ear (deep within the temporal bone).

Ear infections are the most common illness to affect pre-school children with up to 90% of children experiencing one before their third birthday.

When an ear infection occurs, it is the middle ear which is affected. Some children just get the occasional ear infection, others get recurring ear infections and it’s generally these children we see at the clinic. They may also go on to develop glue ear as a result of fluid building up in the middle ear.

Cherished Baby and Child gives you the information you’ll need to identify an ear infection and glue ear. We explain the signs and symptoms and the treatment options.
