(Bullous myringitis)

The myringitis is a special form of acute otitis media, in which bubbles form on the eardrum.

A myringitis may (especially Streptococcus pneumoniae) develop on the ground or mycoplasma of otitis media caused by viruses, bacteria. The pain may persist sudden 24-48 h. Hearing loss and fever indicate a bacterial cause. The diagnosis is based on the otoscopic display of bubbles on the eardrum.

Hearing loss and fever indicate a bacterial cause. The diagnosis is based on the otoscopic display of bubbles on the eardrum. Since viral, bacterial or mycoplasma infections can be difficult to distinguish from each other, generally effective against otitis-media pathogens, antibiotics are prescribed (see table: Guidelines for the use of antibiotics in children with acute otitis media). By opening the bubbles with a Myringotom or oral analgesics (eg. As oxycodone with acetaminophen), the strong, persistent pain can be alleviated. Also locally applied analgesics (eg. As benzocaine or antipyrine) may have a beneficial effect.
