Evaluating Ear Pain

Otitis usually occurs in children, but many older women who tell physicians, "I'm having trouble with my ears, I feel pressure" and they think they have the old classic ear infection, the otitis.  Well, in many cases what they really have is not otitis.  They have a sinus infection or a problem where they feel pressure in the ears.  Obviously, in many cases we don't need antibiotics for either and in some cases we do, but they can be evaluated by your family doctor who can look at it and make a determination and talk it over with you. 

We always appreciate your comments.
