Ear Infection: Among the Most Common Needs for Pediatric ENT
Almost every child will develop at least one ear infection, also called otitis media, by age two. Ear infections come in acute and chronic varieties, but both involve built-up fluid behind the ears. Most of the time, signs of a persistent ear infection are clear. They’re typically very painful and are accompanied by fever, poor appetite, difficulty staying asleep, and loss of balance. If you notice the signs of an ear infection, schedule an appointment at Cross Timbers ENT’s Arlington or Mansfield office. Our specialized team prescribes antibiotics, gives shots, and performs prophylactic therapy to remedy ear infections.
Responding to and Preventing Nose Bleeds
First-time nose bleeds are often terrifying for children, especially when it’s difficult to identify the trigger. Besides injury, nose bleeds are typically caused by drying mucous and inflammatory conditions. Fortunately, treatment for frequent nose bleeds is simple. Cross Timbers ENT suggests using saline nose spray and Bacitracin to keep the inside of the nose from drying out. If nose bleeds continue despite treatment, visit one of our offices for an evaluation.
Pediatric ENT Professionals to Treat Sinus Infections
Sinus infections are prevalent throughout childhood and into adulthood. This condition is usually associated with a runny and stuffy nose, fever, headache, cough, and swelling. Once you notice these symptoms in your child, make an appointment with Cross Timbers ENT as soon as possible. Our doctors can prescribe antibiotics that, when used as directed, will clear out the sinus infection. Some infections are caused by allergies, and if this is the case for your child, we’ll take steps to treat the allergy.
