Otitis

There are two very different types of otitis, both of which children can suffer from: external otitis and middle ear infection.

External otitis affects the auditory canal and is above all related to exposure to swimming pool, bath and fresh water in general. It is most common in summer.

Middle ear infection is related to infections in the upper respiratory tracts, and can be self-limiting (it resolves itself in most cases) or purulent requiring antibiotic treatment It is most common in winter.
