ETD: Eustachian tube dysfunction the natural pressure equalizing tubes in your ear are failing during descent. You can try to pop ears with gum and blowing out. Check with your primary doctor to see if you could be okay taking afrin (oxymetazoline) prior to take off/landing which will help open your nose and also your ear tubes. Also, my patient swear by a product called "earplanes". I can't recommend them though. ...Read more

Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

My 2 year old son is once again crying with ear pain. He just finished taking amoxicillin for another ear infection not two weeks ago. What should do?

Needs a recheck: Taking an antibiotic for an ear infection does not protect into the future. If he is symptomatic again, he may have another infection. The only way to know is to have his doctor examine him. In the meantime, use Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen as tolerated for pain. ...Read more

I had grommets inserted when i was 5 three times and now as a adult i get sharp inner ear pain that usually last to a minute. Is this normal?

Not from the tubes: Very unlikely the ear pain you are getting has anything to do with the tubes you had as a child. Most like cause is strain of the tempromandibulr joint(tmj). Try motrin, soft diet for a week and don't chew gum, ice, etc. Try to chew opposite the side that hurts. If this doesn't work, see your physician. ...Read more

I wouldn't: There are a number of parenting practices passed down through generations that have no value, including this one.Breast milk is a good feed, that's it. It is amazing that so many of us survived these interesting practices. ...Read more

Any hearing loss: The first question i ask a patient with ear ache (otalgia) is if there is any hearing loss associated with pain. If there is no hearing loss and particularly if the pain is in front of the ear, i would be thinking tmd. This could be joint disease, muscle spasm or referred pain to the side of the face (ear) from dental disease as the other reviewer suggested. ...Read more
