What is “glue ear”/ear catarrh/Otitis Media with Effusion (OME)
Glue ear/ear catarrh/OME is often experienced in connection with a common cold. It can lead to a plugged feeling in the ears, muffled hearing ability or partial hearing loss. Both adults and children can suffer from fluid in the middle ear that does not disappear immediately after a middle ear infection.
It is especially important to follow up children after middle ear inflammation as a hearing loss can affect speech development. Also, backwards sniffing (sniffing inward during a cold) can cause ear infections. Pressure differences when flying and diving can also create a negative pressure in the middle ear.
Otovent is a well-documented aid that can be used if you or your child cannot equalize the pressure themselves. Otovent should always be used with an adult.
