6 Ways To Find Out If Your Child Has An Ear Infection

At the age of 6-24 months, your child is prone to acute ear infections. It is quite normal for your child's ear to be infected at one point or the other. Even though an ear infection is quite common among children, it is vital for you to consult a doctor in case there is something serious.

The most common cause for your child's ear infection is because of fluids getting caught in the middle ear, which is prone to infection by bacteria or virus. If they have a severe cold, your child's eustachian tube might swell up causing immense discomfort. Allergies can also cause inflammation in your child's ear. Since your child's immunity system is quite low, they are prone to a bacterial infection that might attack your child's ear.

White or yellow fluid flowing out of your child's ear is a sign of a serious infection. Take your child to the doctor immediately to curb the uneasiness and get it cured as soon as possible.

3. Bad odour

The infection in your child's ear can lead to a bad odour coming from the infected area. This should be the biggest sign for you that something is not right.

4. Sleeplessness

Notice if your child is fidgety with their ear. Fiddling with their ear can be a sign of ear infection and if you don’t take care of it soon enough, they might worsen their infection because of the fidgeting.

6. Vomiting and diarrhoea
