Bacteria and viruses are what cause ear infections. The source of ear infections can include the common cold, flu or allergies, second hand cigarette smoke, and babies who lay flat to drink a bottle. Frequent swimmers can get an outer ear infection also known as swimmers ear.
If you or your child is suffering from an ear infection that is not improving over a couple of days see a doctor. The medical professionals at FastMed Urgent Care treat patients with courteous attention and concern. We are open with extended hours during the week, weekends and holidays for your convenience.
