Ear Problems

If your child has fever vomiting diarrhoea and loss of appetite for no apparent reason and is tugging at her ear she probably has an ear infection.

Earache

If your child has fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, and loss of appetite for no apparent reason and is tugging at her ear, she probably has an ear infection.

Otitis media or inflammation of the middle ear is a very common childhood ailment. A baby spends most of her time lying down. This gives ample opportunity for bacteria to travel from her nose and throat to the ear. Consequently, the mucous membranes of the Eustachian tubes (that link the middle ear to the back of the throat) become blocked and inflamed, trapping the bacteria in the middle ear where they multiply.

If you suspect that your baby has an ear infection, call the doctor. Never put anything in your baby's ear or apply hot compresses to the outside of the ear. Leave the treatment to the doctor. He will probably prescribe antibiotics to combat the infection and nose drops to treat the blockage in the Eustachian tubes.

it would be great if i could afford to take my child to the doctor every time she has a problem, but my husband has recently lost his job due to the economy and alas we have no insurance. the last time i took her to the doctor for an ear ache it cost me $220.00 for the doctor and the medicine. it is a sad state that peple in the 21st century are forced to rely on "old home remedies".

for a earache i read in another home remedie page you can put 1-2 drops of olive oil in the ear that is hurting on your child and i tried it on my 4 year old and it really worked and by the time the doctors office could get me in her pain was gone.the doc.said it looked like she had a earach it was a little red but mostly gone.
