Baby Ear Thermometer
Ear Pain Child: Ear pain is extremely common in childhood and although it is distressing, is usually caused by a minor infection that will resolve on its own. It can be VERY painful, due to pressure inside the ear drum so treating with pain killers like paracetamol +/- ibuprofen is the main treatment. If fevers and pain are ongoing for more than 3 days, then we sometimes advise antibiotics. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Red doesn't diagnose: Red is but one thing we look at when visualizing an ear drum. Red alone does not an ear infection make. An ear drum can be red if child has fever, is crying, holding breath, etc. We also look at landmarks, how the light reflexes, whether the ear drum moves, whether there is fluid behind the drum. All the things together make the diagnosis. If you are concerned, best to have doc look to diagnose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Studies done on the : impact of ambient noise in Neonatal Intensive Care Units resulted in recommendations to remove radios/other music, turn down the volume on monitors & avoid plunking items down on closed warmers. So, turn off the ringer, hold baby with head up 30 degrees & look at him when feeding. Put him face-up in his crib in his room when drowsy, but awake, to self-calm to sleep.

Bring your child to see a doctor if symptoms do not improve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bad ear pain. Nurse cleaned out wax. Doc said fluid behind drum and inf ear canal. How? I'm not sick. Ideas?
Outer ear infection: With otitis externa, you don't always feel 'sick'. You will, however, have wicked ear pain. The wax plug can trap moisture and set up the infection/inflammation. If there is fluid behind the ear drum, that's a middle ear infection and may also be without symptoms. You should have been given drops to treat the outer ear infection and scheduled for a follow-up on the fluid. ...Read more

Son has ear tubes. Fluid draining from one ear. Has sinus drainage too. Take him to doc bc of ear drainage? Worried it's ear infection.
Don't do it: If you have wax stuck on your eardrum don't use a syringe. You first have to soften the wax with the use of over-the-counter wax softening agents. Then syringing might be helpful. In general i discourage my patients from doing anything to their ears as invariably they make things worse. My preference would be for you to see an ENT doctor to have him or her take care of it. ...Read more

About temperatures: 97's, 98's, and 99's are normal temperatures in normal babies. That means those temperatures don't tell you if a baby is normal or not normal. Parents and doctors have to use other signs and symptoms, or the lack thereof, to decide if a baby is normal or not. Look to see if there are other signs. ...Read more
