Middle ear infection is as a result of fluid building up behind the eardrum and being infected by bacteria. This often goes hand in hand with an upper respiratory tract infection (cold, Flu, Sinusitis). The most important is that the build up of fluid and infection is treated as soon as possible. Especially in children it is important to act quickly and if necessary to insert tubes into the ear drum to drain the fluid. This is no a big operation but is important to keep her hearing during the infection optimal. Children learn through hearing and during a middle ear infection her hearing can be affected. As adults we have already the necessary language and learning tho cope but is is important to keep your daughters hearing optimal for future learning.
