Ear Troubles

Infected Ears

Infected Ears - Hamilton Audiologists - Tolbecs Ear Centre, Waikato

Signs of infection can be: irritation – itchiness, tenderness or pain, discharge/leaking/running ears, hearing loss.

At TOLBECS, we remove the infected debris gently and safely using micro-suction. Drops work faster to kill the infection when the ear canal is empty.

Most often we will take a lab swab of the infection. Your Doctor may decide to send this to the laboratory to identify the infecting organisms. Once the exact bacteria and/or fungi are identified your Doctor can prescribe you the best treatment.
