The ear infections often cause allergies because of bacteria and viruses. The bacterium then translates to severe cold and other forms of congestion. It occurs because the Eustachian tube, especially in children, is narrow and the fluid cannot be drained as quickly if it were an adult. One of the symptoms is the coming out of pus from your ear and is pressurized to come out due to the buildup. An allergy causes pain and swelling to ears, causing pus and eardrum rupture. This is dangerous because it can hugely affect your hearing capabilities and lead to more problems including speech incoherence and learning disorders, which are common among children. In some cases, allergies usually escalate to bigger health complications if they are not addressed. It is good to see a doctor help contain the allergy as well as prevent it from spreading elsewhere.
