My 22 month old son has been hitting himself open handed in the ears for the last month. He doesn't cry, have a fever or act like he is any pain. Would it be worth taking him to the doctor now or should I wait until his 2 year checkup on May 29th?
Oh gosh.. I haven't come across this before.. but like the other Mamas said.. it would depend on frequency and if he has any other funny things he is doing that might warrant a trip to the doc sooner.. or.. just calling the doctor or nurse?
As long as it is not an ear infection ... I think it might be able to wait because it might be teeth...when in doubt just call the doc...they will not charge for that!
He doesn't act like he's in any pain. He's been smacking himself in the ears for about a month. I've had an ear infection before and it hurt like crazy. I would think if he had an infection he would be in pain of some sort. Right now he's sitting in the middle of the floor with his hands over his ears but he's smiling at me.
