Oral Antibiotics for Ear Infections: When You Need Them - And When You Don't

If you have a sore throat, cough, or sinus pain, you might expect to take antibiotics. After all, you feel bad, and you want to get better fast. But antibiotics don’t help most respiratory infections, and they can even be harmful. Antibiotics cost money, can have side effects, and, when overused, can stop working as well.

Another option for ear infections - antibiotic eardrops - can sometimes be safer and more effective than oral medicines, with fewer side effects.

Antibiotic eardrops may be more effective and safer for people with Swimmer's Ear and children who have tubes in their ears.

Oral antibiotics may be best for middle-ear infections - especially those that come with severe pain or high fever - or for ear infections that are not resolved with eardrops.
