How To Deal With Itchy Ears In Babies Aged 8 Months?
In the afternoon I want to ask why my son is always scratching his earlobe so that his left and right earlobe is injured. I always check what’s wrong with his ear, I see there’s nothing but why does he always want to sleep when he always scratches his ear until it’s back Leaf Ear Wound???? Is there a solution?????
Thank you for the question. Usually a baby will scratch the ear if it itches or hurts. Because your baby is not yet able to express discomfort or pain, your baby will usually express it with body movements or crying. Some of the possible causes of this symptom include:
otitis externa, which is an infection of the outer ear otitis media, which is an infection of the middle ear eczema on the earlobe insect bites dry skin in the ear area presence of a foreign body in the ear a buildup of dirt in the ear canal You should consult a pediatrician first so that the doctor can check your baby's condition. The doctor will need to examine the inside of your baby's ear and the area around the earlobe to find the cause. If a medical condition is found that causes your baby's behavior to be like that, the doctor will recommend certain treatments to handle it. In the meantime, you can try putting gloves on your baby so they don't injure his ears further. You can clean the wound with clean water and gauze.
