Your Source for Reliable Ear Infection Treatment in St. Clair Shores, MI

Close-up of female medical practitioner Examining Boy's Ear With An OtoscopeEar infections are among the most common childhood illnesses, but adults can get them, too. When ear infection symptoms include a fever of 102 degrees or higher, hearing loss, and fluid discharge from the ear, or if ear pain has persisted for more than a couple of days, it’s a good idea to seek a medical diagnosis and treatment. Of course, if you’re a parent, you may want to seek ear infection treatment for your child as soon as symptoms begin, so you can have peace of mind that your child’s health is in professional hands.

Fortunately for those in or near St. Clair Shores, Michigan, Springfield Urgent Care has a walk-in clinic that’s staffed and equipped to provide speedy ear infection treatment for children and adults. We treat walk-in patients of all ages, including infants, and we’re open during extended hours every day of the week. This means you can visit our walk-in clinic on weekday evenings or on the weekends when traditional doctor’s offices are closed.

Types of Ear Infections & Their Symptoms

The most common type of ear infection, especially in infants and preschoolers, is one that occurs in the middle ear, typically after the patient has had a cold. Children have small eustachian tubes, which are ducts that drain mucus from the ear to the throat. When these tubes swell during a respiratory illness, they may not drain properly, thus providing an opportunity for a viral or bacterial infection.

Middle ear infection symptoms typically include:

  • Ear pain
  • Fever
  • Irritability and trouble sleeping
  • Loss of balance
  • Lack of appetite
  • Hearing loss
  • Drainage of pus or fluid from the ear

Another type of ear infection is known as “swimmer’s ear” because it often occurs after a person spends a lot of time with their head underwater. However, this type of ear infection can also result from skin breakage near the ear opening, which allows germs to infect the outer ear area.

In many cases, it’s important to get an accurate ear infection diagnosis and effective treatment plan—which might include antibiotic treatment—to prevent complications that can lead to permanent hearing loss.

If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”
