Glue ear

Glue ear

Glue ear is a condition where an increase in fluid in the middle ear can cause deafness. Adults suffer from glue ear due to upper respiratory infections, allergies, the result of medications and other underlying illness. Usually there is no need to treat glue ear since it will naturally be cleared and hearing restored once the underlying cause is treated. Therefore, anti-allergy medications are needed and colds and cough should be treated.
