Happiest Health looks at common symptoms of mastoiditis

Mastoiditis is a medical condition characterised by the inflammation or infection of the mastoid bone, which is a prominent bone located behind the ear. The mastoid bone is a part of the temporal bone in the skull. Mastoiditis typically occurs as a complication of a middle ear infection, particularly when the infection spreads to the mastoid air cells, causing them to become inflamed and infected. Here are the common symptoms of mastoiditis.

Takeaway on symptoms of mastoiditis

Consider prompt medical attention for mastoiditis, as it is a serious condition. According to National Library of Medicine, if left untreated, it can lead to complications such as the formation of abscesses and damage to surrounding structures. There is also the potential for the spread of infection to other areas, including the brain. Treatment typically involves antibiotics to eliminate the infection. In severe cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to drain abscesses or remove infected tissue. Early diagnosis and intervention are important to prevent complications and ensure a successful outcome.
