HELP my 2month old was drinking off is bottle and his threw up to the side causing milk to go in his ear will that cause an ear infection?

Gently, with a warm washcloth clean the inside of the ea canal that you can reach. Do NOT use a q tip as this can cause damage. Oh, and don't worry! ...Read more

What to do if I wear ear plugs a lot in bed because my husband snores. I have a fever. Could i possibly have an ear infection?

Maybe: If an ear infection is severe enough to cause a fever, it'll hurt. I've used modeling clay and discovered it's better than any commercial ear plugs -- it was a life-saver for me at one time. If your husband is a reasonable person, he owes it to himself (and you) to get the snoring evaluated by a physician -- it can cost him his health and even his life. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if my 6month old baby has an ear infection and a 100 degree fever for 3 days. W hat should I be looking out for?
