  • Ear Infections

    Ear infections or earaches can result from a variety of indications, but the most common factors include sinus disease, common cold, inflamed tonsils, pharynx infection, impacted teeth and inflamed nasal. Also, when the inner ear becomes damaged by insertion of a foreign object, this can cause earaches.

    If you have severe cold or respiratory infection, Eustachian tubes become blocked with mucus from the virus. Don't ignore any of the symptoms. Visit us at Makana North Shore Urgent Care for diagnosis and treatment ASAP.

  • Ear Drainage

  • Eye Infections

    Eye infections come in three forms: bacterial, viral and fungal. Because the symptoms are similar for all, it’s often difficult to figure out the cause – which is why self-diagnosing can be so dangerous. Without proper treatment, eye infections can get worse quickly and lead to thousands of dollars in emergency bills.

    Even the slightest of these symptoms can sometimes be very serious, so here’s a breakdown of what an eye infection looks like and when you should see a provider

    urgently. Having just one or two of these symptoms doesn’t always indicate the presence of an infection, but if you notice more than one of them or if they get worse as the days go by, it might be time to call us at Makana North Shore Urgent Care.
