Ear Pain in Infants and Children
Your baby does not have a high fever, severe belly pain, or stiff neck, is not having trouble breathing, and does not seem confused. That is reassuring.
Young children can not use words to tell us they have ear pain. They may tell us in other ways.
Is your child
having trouble sleeping
crying when you put his head down
pulling or tugging at the ear
having fluid draining from the ear?
