If you suffer from chronic ear infections, then you know the pressure, pain, fluid drainage, trouble sleeping, low grade fever and hearing loss that come with them are troubling symptoms.

These symptoms may come and, even seem mild at times. But chronic ear infections left untreated or unresolved might result in acute ear infections, hearing loss, damage to the bones of the middle ear or even a perforated eardrum.

Dr. Tirino can provide a treatment plan for battling chronic ear infections. Treatment usually begins with medications like an antibiotic to fight the bacteria. Ear drops may be prescribed if there is a hole in the eardrum. Severe cases may result in the need for surgery. Your experienced physician will recommend the best plan for you.
