My daughter is 5 years old. She had her tonsils and adenoids removed last month. This morning she said that her right ear was hurting. I took a look at it but it's not red or anything. I gave her some motrin throughout the day and I've had her hold a warm washcloth to her ear. I can't get her into the doctors until Monday or Tuesday and it's not bad enough to take her out to the ER. What are some other ways of helping to ease the pain for her?
My kids have ear ache's all the time. Now, they have tubes in their ears, but before then I ended up getting ear drops to relieve the pain for them. I know it doesn't help you now, but when you are at the doc's ask for some. It's nice to have on hand at the house, especially on Friday and Saturday's when the office's are closed, and there is no fever or anything. Tylenol, or Ibuprofen helps too. I would give my kids the normal dose of Tylenol, and then two hours later givethem the normal dose of Motrin, or Advil. If it was the four hour kind. If it's the eight hour kind, then I would give one dose of one, and then four hours later, a dose of the other. It's doc approved, btw, and better than overdosing on one kind of medicine.
