Children between 6 months and 2 years of age are most commonly affected. However, persons of any age may experience AOM. Up to 90% of children will have experienced at least one episode of AOM by the age of two or three years. Children who attend day care may be more likely to experience ear infections. Viral infections of the upper respiratory tract or allergy can lead to an ear infection. Nasal congestion can lead to infection in the ear and accumulation of fluid in the ear, which can result in an earache. For earache pain, ibuprofen (Advi/, Motnn) may be helpful. Auralgan, which contains benzocaine, may be applied to the affected.ear to help reduce pain. Whether a prescription antibiotic is prescribed for a child with an ear infection will depend on several factors, including how severe the infection is. Amoxicillin (AmoΧil) is a penicillin antibiotic that is typically prescribed for children with AOM. If a child is mildly allergic to penicillin, a cephalosporin antibiotic, such as cefdinir (Omnicef) or cefuroxime (Ceftin) may be prescribed. However, if a child has a severe allergy to penicillin, a macrolide antibiotic, such as clarithromycin (Biaxin) or azithromycin (Zithromax) can be used.
