toddler earache treatment

A common cause of a toddler earache is infection. The pain can be mild to moderate. I remember my son woke up in the middle of the night complaining about his ear pain. I took his temperature, was fine, he could not sleep so I took him to the ER.

Ear infection can be very painful, so if your child is older than 6 month, you can give him acetaminophen or ibuprofen. You doctor may recommend antibiotics.Since antibiotics also kill the good bacteria, your toddler might have some digestive discomfort. Give him yogurt, or children's probiotics.

    Only my oldest had an ear infection when she was a toddler and it bothered her so much she threw up. She still struggles with swimmer's ear, but my mom told me she always did too so maybe it is a genetic thing since my oldest is the only one out of eight children to have an ear infection.
