Hello Nita, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Ear pain in children can be caused by the following things:
- Ear infections (Otitis media or otitis externa). In children, otitis media is more common due to a cold cough. Complaints can be pain in the ear, discharge from the ear, the child becomes fussy, and decreased hearing response.
- Serumen prop / ear wax.
- Sinus blockage. Can occur if the sinuses are blocked due to colds.
- Take a plane or are on high ground
To find out the cause more clearly and see the wound directly you should be able to bring your child to see a doctor yes. So that the cold cough and fever can also be treated. At home, if your child feels pain in the ear then he can take pain relievers such as paracetamol syrup according to the dose for your child. Then, keep the ears dry, don't swim or dive for a while, avoid cleaning the ears with cotton buds, avoid cold drinks / foods such as ice cream, provide good nutrition for children, and get enough rest.
If your child has severe ear pain, high fever, then immediately take it to the doctor.
Thank you, I hope this helps you.
