Ear infections can cause hearing problems that last several days and usually return to normal when the disease goes into remission.
Regularly wash your hands with soap and warm water, take measures that will help avoid colds and other respiratory infections.
Temporary hearing loss can be caused by fluid in the ear or congestion.
However, there is also permanent hearing loss, a consequence of ear damage caused by loud noises, aging, infectious diseases or other causes.
According to the information of the Johns Hokins hospital (USA), about 3 out of 4 children develop an ear infection at least once before the age of 3.
Ear infections also occur in adults but with less frequency.
Since the ear canal of children is shorter, narrower and more horizontal than that of adults, there is a greater likelihood of an ear infection.
Ear infections can cause hearing to deteriorate, causing hearing loss but often temporarily.
