Sadly, I have to tell you that there seems to be still some bacteria residing in my ears. These are tough little b.st.rds!!
The middle ear is the small, air-filled cavity just behind the paper-thin eardrum. Normally, air enters the middle ear through the Eustachian tube, equalizing the pressure between the middle ear and outer ear. The Eustachian tube also drains fluid out of the middle ear. When this tube becomes blocked, and air and fluid cannot flow freely, pressure builds in the ear, causing pain.
If fluid behind the eardrum becomes infected with a virus or bacteria, it causes a middle ear infection that can lead to pain and fever. Well I don’t have a fever (again) but I’m sure experiencing some pain.
GP has got me started on my third antibiotic therapy. Hope this will kill those b…s…ds. It is getting a little tedious.
Going to bed now with some paracetamol (acetaminophen). Hoping that the pain will be a little less tomorrow.
