Ear, Nose and Throat Infections

Infections of the ear, nose and throat are common conditions that may develop as a result of a virus, fungus or bacteria. These infections may cause facial pressure and pain, fever, irritability, headache, dizziness and other troubling symptoms. Some of the most common types of ENT infections include ear infections, strep throat, sinus infections and more.

Many of these conditions, especially ear infections (otitis media), occur most often in children as a result of excess fluid in the ear or a bacterial infection. Treatment varies depending on the type and cause of the infection, but may include antibiotics, decongestants, antihistamines or nasal sprays. Your doctor will determine the best treatment for your individual condition.
