Otitis externa (OE) is an infection of the ear canal. Because the canal is dark and warm, it can easily get infected with bacteria (germs) and fungus.

Young children are often brought into emergency rooms by parents distraught by their children's constant crying. Pediatricians however are not likely to prescribe antibiotics for 48-72hrs to see if the infection will resolve itself.

As a parent, you can do things to help prevent your child from getting an ear infection, but certain risk factors are beyond your control.
