Hello Mrs. Devi! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Coughing and colds in children can indeed cause infection in the middle ear or what is called otitis media. Otitis media can occur because the connection between the ear and the airway (Eustachian tube) which should be filled with air becomes filled with fluid. The fluid is infected with germs from the respiratory tract infection that the child had initially. In addition to ear pain, the child's hearing will also be slightly impaired. Children sometimes also have fever. If left untreated, the child's eardrum will burst and fluid will leak out through the ear. Fluid will drain out of the ear for a few days and healing can take several weeks to achieve. Apart from otitis media, other disorders of the ear cannot be excluded, such as the entry of foreign objects or injury to the eardrum. It takes a direct examination to determine it.
Instead, you should immediately bring your child to see a general practitioner or ENT doctor for further examination and treatment. The child's ear will be examined to determine the appropriate therapy. To deal with pain, you can give your child a painkiller in the form of paracetamol. Do not give antibiotics without the doctor's instructions because the inappropriate administration of antibiotics will not help and may cause problems in the future. Good handling can solve problems in your child's ear and avoid further complications. Do not pick or put any object in your ear. Children should drink lots of water and eat a well-nourished and balanced diet.
