Ear Pain In Children Under Five Years
It’s been 2 days my child feels sick suddenly until he can’t hold it to look / check
Hello Katim, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of ear pain can occur due to various possible causes including:
Acute otitis media
Chronic otitis media
Trauma to the ear, for example due to digging the ear too deep
Corpus alineum / foreign body in the ear such as insects that enter the ear
Symptoms can be accompanied by several other complaints such as fever, discharge, and so on. Because there are various causes to distinguish them, it is necessary to do a physical examination and other additional examinations. That way the cause can be known and the treatment will become more directed.
For that, some things you can do are:
Clean the child's ears properly
Use earmuffs if the child is swimming
Avoid ears in a moist state by keeping it dry
Routinely check the child's ears
Give Paracetamol according to the dosage on the package to relieve pain in children
Compress ear pain with warm water
If the complaint persists or gets worse as if accompanied by a fever, a yellow smelling liquid comes out, until the blood goes to the doctor for further treatment.
So, hopefully useful.
