Hi fellow parents, My daughter is 4. She has been regularly complaining about pain in her left ear from past two days. She is not able to sleep and even eat properly. I am afraid if it is some kind of infection that she may be heading to. Please help.

Hi! Just one rule which i follow........ if a child complains of any pain 3 times after an interval of more than an hour in a day, i just visit the doctor. Regards, Dr. Monica Lall (Orthodontist)

hey menka , ear aches are slighlty more serious than your regulr cold hence a professional opinion may be the right way to deal with it ...

Dear Menka ! I completely agree with Anurima, ONE it could be due to sore throat or cold that the child is suffering. Please look for other symptoms such as fever, yellowish /greenish discharge from nose, lack of sleep etc. U can rule out that by visiting a paediatrician n with the help of otoscope he can check for ear infection n give medication. TWo it could be due to the fact that child might have hurt self with a sharp pointed object such as a pencil, pen , ear bud etc. for which again u need to see a doctor immediately. It is advisable pls see doc immediately as it might affect child's overall well being n make her irritable because of pain.

Dear Menka, does she also have a cold? Ear infection usually is linked with cold and cough. Another reason could also be build up of ear wax which could be annoying her. Whatever may be the reason, it is best to take her to the doctor as this may only get worse with time. An early intervention may help in making the whole condition worse. Hope this helps.
