Mastoiditis

Homeopathic Treatment for Mastoiditis

Mastoiditis is an inflammation of the mastoid process (bone), the portion of the temporal bone of the skull that is behind the ear. The mastoid process contains open, air-containing spaces. Mastoiditis used to be a leading cause of child mortality.

Mastoiditis can be acute, chronic, or recurrent.

Causes:

In most cases, Mastoiditis is caused by certain gram-positive bacteria such as streptococci pyrogens, Staphylococcus aureus, etc. Gram-negative bacteria can rarely cause Mastoiditis.

  • Mastoiditis is usually caused by the infection of the middle ear, which is called acute otitis media. Infection from the middle ear spreads to the air cells of the mastoid process.
  • Mastoiditis may be the result of blockage of ear drainage. A skin tumor in the middle ear called Cholesteotoma may block the ear drainage.
  • Perforation of the tympanic membrane may also lead to Mastoiditis.

Symptoms:

  • Discomfort or pain behind the ear.
  • Discharge of pus, fluid from the ear.
  • Redness and swelling behind the ear.
  • Fever or headache in case of acute Mastoiditis.
  • Hearing loss and vertigo

Diagnosis:

It is best diagnosed clinically with the help of detailed history and physical examination. CT scan, MRI, and X-ray help to confirm the diagnosis and evaluate the extent of the disease.

Complications:

  • Hearing loss
  • Vertigo
  • Meningitis
  • Facial nerve palsy
  • Brain abscess
