Probably childhood is the period in one’s life, when he or she experiences most frequently conditions of illnesses. The first who freak out and panic are the parents. Of course they love their little ones and want to keep them safe, but they have to know that the immune system is now developing and children are more exposed to infections than adults. It is simply not the child’s fault, but it is the way we are built.
One of the most common childhood illnesses is the ear infections. They are really usual for with babies and toddlers. Even if the child does not say anything you have to look for the signs. If a child is restless, crying without a reason and pulling his ear, this might be because of the infection. In babies it is a little difficult to detect it. Anyhow they will feel hot and are quite irritable.
If the ear infection comes back time after time, then you may be dealing with an otitis media. Sometimes all these fluids can build up in your child’s ear. This may affect his hearing and you really have to see a doctor to treat that. Anyhow in case of the regular ear infection you have to give him medication to relief the pain. Another measure is to try avoiding water in their ears, especially if they are having a bath of some kind. It will all go away for good from 2 to 6 weeks.
