Hello Riska, Thank you for the question.
Complaints that your child experiences can be related to one another but can also stand alone. These complaints can be caused by strep throat, tonsillitis, and flu. The hiudng cavity and throat are connected to the middle ear through a channel called the Eustachian tube. If inflammation or infection occurs in the nasal cavity and throat, then this condition can affect ear health, causing complaints in the ear, one of which is ear pain. Even infections can move to the middle ear if the infection is not treated. On the other hand, complaints of swollen eyes can be caused by conjunctivitis, allergic reactions, or insect bites.
Before giving medicines you should consult a doctor first because the administration of medicines for children must be more careful than adults. In addition, consultation with a doctor also aims to find out the cause of this complaint and its severity so that the doctor can provide the right medicine for your child. Therefore, please check with your child to the doctor first, yes.
The following suggestions can help your child's complaints:
multiply water intake for your child
avoid giving your child spicy, oily and hot foods
give soft food for easy swallowing
teach children to rinse with warm salt water to relieve sore throat
apply cold compresses on swollen eyes
teach children not to rub their eyes especially with dirty hands
keep your child's ears clean and dry, avoid putting anything in the ear
if ear pain is very annoying, give paracetamol as recommended on the package to relieve pain
Hopefully this information helps you.
