Patient Comments: Otitis Media - Effective Treatments

What treatments have been effective for your otitis media?

Comment from: Estelle, 55-64 Female (Caregiver) Published: January 14

I have ear pain and chronic sinusitis going on nine months now. After three prescriptions I am still in pain with no relief. An x-ray was taken of my right ear and the impression was that I had a partial opacification of some of the air cells in the right Temporal Bone.
