My Ears are Ringing!
Colds and other respiratory infections unfortunately seem to ring with babies and young kids getting ear infections. Because it isn’t always easy for small children to tell you what’s wrong, we’ve made a checklist to help.
Symptoms of an ear infection may include:
- Ear pain (mild to severe). Babies often pull or tug at their ears when they have an earache.
- Drainage from the ear that is thick and yellow or bloody. This means the eardrum has probably ruptured.
- Loss of appetite, vomiting, and irritable behavior
- Difficulty sleeping
Symptoms of fluid buildup may include:
- Popping, ringing, or a feeling of pressure in the ear. Children often have trouble describing this feeling. They may rub their ears trying to relieve pressure.
- Difficulty hearing. Children who have problems hearing may seem inattentive or cranky.
- Balance problems and dizziness
Signs that your child may have an ear infection tend to start 2 to 7 days after a cold or other upper respiratory infection.
