Ear Pain in Infants and Children

Your child is not having difficulty breathing, does not have severe belly pain, high fever, or stiff neck, and does not seem confused. That is reassuring.

Do any of the following statements describe your child?

  • My child has severe ear pain that came on quickly.

  • My child has fever.

  • There is fluid draining from my child's ear.

Yes, my child has one or more of these symptoms.

No, that does not describe my child.
