Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
Started with URI feb 23, turned into bilateral ear infection. Was prescribed azithromycin 500 on 3/2 and cephalexin 250 on 3/14. I still cannot hear.
Middle ear fluid: First, zithromax is not a good drug for upper respiratory bacterial infections. If you have a hearing loss, it is most likely that you have fluid behind the ear drum. That fluid can be surgically removed and hearing should return immediately. First, however, get an audiogram (hearing test). If the hearing loss has been present for more than 3 weeks, see an ENT for therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have ear infection, hearing sometime on sometime off, can hear the morning then cannot hear in the evening, is it recovering?
No: This is not a sign of recovery. Recovery would manifest in steady improvement. If you've been taking antibiotics for less than 72 hours, keep on taking them. If no improvement after that, call your doc. Make sure to take a probiotic supplement along with the antibiotic to prevent diarrhea. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with a pretty bad inner ear infection, finished my antibiotic but now its itching and i still cannot hear out of that ear. Why?
Takes time: To have a middle ear infection you accumulate fluid/pus/debris in the middle ear.This must eventually be absorbed by the body or drain down your Eustachian tubes to allow the normal air (hearing) to return.The duration of antibiotic use is based on how long it takes to kill the germ. The fluid (hearing loss) can persist for a few weeks after that stops. ...Read more

Ear infection-severe pressure pain-bleeding-then no pain. Cannot hear at all. ER doc could not see problem with ear drum- could it still be ruptured?
DEPENDS: An adult ear drum is easier to evaluate than that of a kid and less often obscured by wax buildup or debris in the canal.If the ER doc saw the ear drum a even a small rupture is relatively easy to spot.The smaller ones can heal quickly, but that would take a minimum of several days.A Q-tip placed in the canal during the process could have scraped the wall=blood. ...Read more
I have a dullness in my right ear following having the flu, I have had my ears syringed a week ago but still cannot hear properly?
Fluid behind eardrum: Often during or after a viral infection, fluid can accumulate behind the eardrum causing a feeling of fullness and dullness. It's not necessarily a bacterial infection so it doesn't always have to be treated with antibiotics. Decongestants and intranasal steroids can help, but if it's persisting, then evaluation with an ENT is sometimes warranted. Best of luck! ...Read more

Finished 5D zpack for ear infection Feel ringing in ear, fluid and a little pain and loss of hearing. Could the infection still be there?
Possible: As it can still be a viral infection, very difficult to tell from the outset, also you may have chronic serous otitis media, meaning persistent fluid in your middle ear mainly due to Eustachian tube dysfunction, more common in kids though, also chronic inflammation of nasal cavity/ throat for whatever reason like allergies can cause this. Kindly revisit your doctor or ENT specialist, good luck ...Read more
I'm taking CEFDINIR for an inner ear infection. Its going on 4 days now of taking it and I still cant hear out of my ear. Should I switch meds?
No: One feature of middle ear infections is the accumulation of mucous and puss in the middle ear space. This transiently reduces hearing up to 40%or so. It can remain for a week or two (6 in babies) after you kill all the germs because the material must drain through your Eustachian tube to the throat and be displaced by air.Abx kill germs but the rest can take time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
