  • Nothing you can do but wait it out and bring her to the doctor ASAP.

  • When my DD had a earache the ER Dr. told me to give childrens Advil for pain, until the antibiotics kicked in, I hope this helps.

  • You can also try just putting a half a cotton ball wadded up in her ear......sometimes that can help.

  • Warm compresses on the ear to help ease the pain and some warm garlic oil if you can get it. The antibiotics from the doc won't help the pain immediately any way so some tylenol if the warm compresses don't help.

  • also try propping the top part of her bed up with a pillow underneath the mattress it helps keep them up so it doesnt hurt as bed laying flat will make it hurt worse for her tylenol and motrin will help the pain till the anti's kick in dont worrie tho shell start feeling better in 2-3days
