Ear Infection? Ouch!

The ears are sensory organs that often suffer infection, especially in children. These infections may be acute or chronic; they can affect the external, middle and inner ear. Following a few simple tips can reduce the risk of contracting an external or middle ear infection.

Avoid polluted water: People who swim in polluted water may develop an external ear infection known as swimmer's ear. To reduce this risk, a person should avoid swimming in untreated swimming pools, lakes and other stagnant bodies of water.
