If your child is dealing with an earache, Puri Pharmacy is trained to provide support through the Pharmacy First service in Southall and Hillingdon. Furthermore, our FREE consultation service is available at both our branches, offering expert and professional care for you and your family. Additionally, we are equipped to prescribe certain prescription-only medicines, including antibiotics, to treat an earache.
What is an earache?
Earaches, commonly affecting children, typically last about a week. Over 80% of children naturally recover within 2-3 days without antibiotics. The symptoms often clear up on their own without medication.
At Puri Pharmacy, we are trained to recognise and treat earaches caused by infections. For a FREE consultation, visit our branches in Southall and Hillingdon. Characterized by pain resulting from infections, fluid buildup, or inflammation in the ear canal or middle ear, earaches may range from mild to intense.
Think Pharmacy First
Ear infections, particularly in children, usually persist for about a week. Additionally, over 80% of children naturally recover within 2-3 days without requiring antibiotics. For children aged 1 to 17 years, we are trained to assess and provide treatment through the Pharmacy First service.
However, we will refer you to your GP if:
- There are recurrent acute otitis media (3 or more episodes in 6 months or four or more episodes in 12 months).
- You are pregnant and under 16 years of age.
