In brief: Antibiotics

Mastoid infections in adults are somewhat rare today;but is serious.
Take the antibiotics as prescribed to prevent a possible surgery.

In brief: Verify

Who made this diagnosis? A specialist? How was diagnosis made? Ct? Mri? Clinical exam? Make sure you actually have mastoiditis before you start looking for treatment.
The treatment depends on severity. See a specialist.
