Caption: Ear pain. Young boy holding his ear in pain due to otitis media. Otitis media is inflammation of the middle ear due to an infection in the eustachian tube (joining the middle ear and nasal cavity). The infection causes blockage of the tube, and a build-up of fluid and usually pus occurs behind the eardrum. This causes sharp ear pain, and impaired hearing. The infection can usually be cleared up with antibiotics.
