“Should I See a Specialist?”

Bring your child to Dr. Dobleman and his compassionate team if you see chronic presentation of these symptoms:

  • Nasal dripping or drainage
  • Nasal congestion
  • Nasal bleeding
  • Ear pain or decreased hearing
  • Drainage of fluid from the ear
  • Sore throat or difficulty swallowing
  • A lump or bump in the face or neck

Adults should set an appointment with Dr. Dobleman when they notice these symptoms:

  • Severe ear pain or decreased hearing
  • Facial pressure
  • Sinus headache
  • Nasal congestion and drainage
  • Persistent sore throat or difficulty swallowing
  • Lump or bump
  • Ear pressure pain
  • Strep throat
  • Chronic phlegm

They’re all related…

Your ears, nose, and throat have similar mucus membrane linings, which means they get similar infections; an infection, allergy or another problem affecting one of them may also affect the others. For instance, do you (or your children) have trouble hearing as well as a sore throat? It’s likely these symptoms are related. Experts such as Dr. Tom Dobleman or his Certified Physician Assistant, Doug Larson will be able to tell for sure.

You may have a bacterial or viral infection that affects the middle ear, the air-filled space behind the eardrum that contains the tiny vibrating bones of the ear. Middle ear infections usually require antibiotic medications if they are sufficiently severe. ‘

Bacterial or virus?

Strep throat is an example of an infection caused by bacteria. Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that thrive in many different types of environments. Most bacteria cause no harm to people. Of course, strep throat in an example.

The common cold is a result of a virus, which are even smaller than bacteria and require living hosts — such as people, plants or animals — to multiply. Otherwise, they can’t survive. When a virus enters your body, it invades some of your cells and takes over the cell “machinery,” redirecting it to produce the virus.

Regardless of whether your ailment begins with a bacteria or a virus, you can trust Dr. Dobleman to treat appropriately for pain and empower you to return to normalcy within two to four days.
