The three most common types of ear infections are otitis media (infection of the middle ear), otitis interna (also known as an inner ear infection or labyrinthitis), and otitis externa (also known as an outer ear infection or swimmer’s ear).

Common symptoms include pain, discharge, itching, deafness, imbalance and sometimes a ringing in the ears.

All the necessary equipment and diagnostic tests are available for Professor Timms to diagnose and treat these different types of ear infection at the Saudi German Hospital and at the Advanced Hearing & Balance Center, Wafi.
