Otitis complications

Complications could include:

  • If an infection develops in your middle ear and blocks your Eustachian tube, it may subsequently lead to a serious infection in the mastoid bone.
  • A cholesteatoma is a non-cancerous skin cyst that develops in the middle section of your ear. It may be congenital-meaning that you were born with it. It can also be caused by repeated ear infections. ...
  • If your voice is hoarse, you may have a raspy, weak, or airy quality to your voice that prevents you from making smooth vocal sounds.
  • Facial paralysis is loss of facial movement because of nerve damage. It often presents as droopiness or weakness on one side of the face and is typically caused by infection, trauma, tumors, or stroke.
  • Bell's palsy is a condition that affects movement of the muscles in the face as a result of damage to the seventh cranial nerve controlling them. Significant damage of this nerve can result in paralysis of the face.
