My 2 year old son has intermittent bilateral bright red ear lobes that are very hot to the touch. Should i be concerned?A neighbor suggested htn?

Vasodilation: I do not know of any correlation between bright red ear lobes and hypertension. It sounds like he is having a transient vasodilation involving his ears lobes (blood flow gets increased to this area). If he really has no other symptoms, i would not be too concerned about it at this point. ...Read more

This treatment should liquefy the wax and then gentle irrigation with warm water should help. Try emergency room doctor. ...Read more

Likely infections: Many youngsters have red throats and red ears from infections (both virus and bacteria germs). The eczema infection is likely to be from a bacteria germ. The doctor should have decided whether s/he thinks that one or both of the infections requires treatment with antibiotics.

I have some kind ear pain, with redness in eardrum, also when swollowing pain worseness. With small white spot inside mouth.

Otitis media: Redness of an ear drum can only be visualized by looking through an otoscope and this indicates inflammation/infection of the middle ear. Antibiotics are generally prescribed to treat this. If your throat is also very sore, a rapid throat culture to check for strep can be done. ...Read more

My son is 15 months old and about 2 months ago he had roseola w/swollen glands behind ear they are still there and one in groin. Is this common?

Yes: The glands will always be there but will usually peak in size within a week of the infection and slowly decrease in size over a 3-4 wks. If another process stimulates them they may not shrink completely. I rarely have to do anything with glands in these locations. ...Read more

Looked in baby's ear and ear drum is red on one ear he is teething and runny nose could it b ear infection or pressure?4 weeks ago on antibiotics

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 more
