Caption

Otitis media. Close-up of the ear of a patient affected by otitis media. It is an infection of the middle ear, the most common cause of earache. The pain is likely to be severe and stabbing and there may also be loss of hearing and raised temperature. In this case, as a result of a build- up of pus in the middle ear, the eardrum has ruptured (perforated eardrum) causing a purulent discharge. Analgesic drugs may be given to relieve the pain whereas the infection is treated with antibiotic drugs.
