Earache

 

Earache is due to infection of the ear, and may follow a cold and a sore throat. It may also occur along with toothache. There may or may not be fever, but the child is restless and irritable. A child may cry, as if in pain, and it may be very difficult for you to judge where the pain is. Sometimes the child may pull at his ear again and again, and this may help in pinpointing the cause of his crying. All infections of the ear should be treated promptly.

Earache may also be due to hard wax, which completely blocks the opening of the ear, or the child might have put something in the ear. If it is clearly visible, you can try and remove it with tweezers, but never try and poke around with a needle or a hairpin. It is best to take the child to a doctor or to a hospital.
