If your doctor determines that you are experiencing an ear infection, they will discuss a treatment plan with you. Ear infections often clear up on their own and do not require medication. To relieve discomfort, your doctor may recommend over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil & Motrin IB). If your symptoms are severe or persistent, antibiotics may be prescribed to help clear up the infection. Different types of ear infection treatment are detailed below.
