In brief: Infection controlled

Otitis media is infection of the middle ear and it needs to be under the care of a physician.

In brief: Otitis Media

Otitis media can be used to mean a middle ear infection with pus in the middle ear, or fluid in the middle ear without infection.
If there is pus, acute otitis media, the symptoms of pain, fever, malaise typically improve with a few days of using an anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The fluid may take three months or longer to resolve.
