Right Now MD Pediatricians are available from 8 AM-midnight to visit your hotel room, resort or vacation home to treat your newborn to 21-year-old child’s ear, nose or throat infection.
An ear infection is a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear. Because of the inflammation and buildup of fluids, ear infections can be painful. Symptoms of an ear infection usually occur rapidly and include ear pain, fever, difficulty sleeping, vertigo, drainage of fluid from the ear, and diminished hearing. Although most ear infections go away on their own, some require antibiotics. If you or your child are experiencing symptoms related to an ear infection, feel free to consult with Right Now MD during your visit.
Strep Throat is a bacterial infection that may cause a sore or scratchy throat. This infection spreads easily and is generally transmitted by airborne respiratory droplets in coughs and sneezes or by saliva. Symptoms often include sore throat, fever, and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. Penicillin based antibiotics may be prescribed to stop the growth of or kill the bacteria but other medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can be taken to reduce pain, inflammation, or fever. If you feel like you have strep throat and have any questions, please feel free to ask to one of our friendly medical staff to schedule a visit.
