Ear Infection Treatment Administered by Experienced Physicians in Cape May, NJ
Ear infection treatment depends largely on the severity of the infection. Although these infections can affect people of all ages, they occur most frequently in young children, due to their smaller inner ear structure. Parents often wonder when they should try to treat their children at home and when they should seek out help from a medical professional. In most cases, taking a wait-and-see approach can help, particularly if the child has a low-grade fever and minor pain that has lasted less than 48 hours. However. If the child is running a fever over 102 degrees or has been experiencing more severe ear pain, it’s time to visit a physician for help. Cape Regional Urgent Care can provide the helping hand that parents in Cape May, New Jersey, might need.
Ear infections often resolve themselves, although parents may wish to give their children a small dose of acetaminophen or ibuprofen (aspirin must be used with caution due its link to Reye’s Syndrome) to help with the ear pain. However, when the issue is serious enough to warrant the intervention of physicians, the experts at Cape Regional Urgent Care can examine the ear(s) affected and potentially prescribe antibiotics to help treat an underlying bacterial infection. Plus, we know that trying to care for a child who is in pain is no walk in the park, so we try to make the ear infection treatment process as quick, easy, and effective as possible by:
- staying open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the week
- treating patients on a walk-in basis
- being centrally located in a Cape May Court House shopping district just off the Garden State Parkway
