Ear infection problems in adults
The symptoms of an ear infection in
adults are:
Earache. Sometimes it’s a sharp, sudden pain
or a dull, continuous pain.
A sharp stabbing pain with immediate warm
drainage from the ear canal.
A feeling of fullness in the ear.
Muffled hearing.
Ear drainage.
What causes an ear infection?
Middle ear infections are caused by bacteria
and viruses. During a cold, sinus or
throat infection, or an allergy attack, the
eustachian tubes, which connect the
middle ears to the throat, can become
blocked. This stops fluid from draining from
the middle ear.
