  • It could be that her ears haven't popped from the change in altitude. It happens to a lot of people, especially kids. She could also have an ear infection, does she have a fever or any other symptoms? If she is still hurting in the morning, take her to the doctor.

  • If it began after she had a bath, it could be that some water is trapped in her inner ear, like "swimmer's ear." You can put a few drops of rubbing alcohol in her ear to help evaporate the water.

    If it didn't start after a bath, you could try putting a few drops of warmed mineral or baby oil in her ear and running a blow drier on hot over her ear to see if it helps melt any wax that might be pressing on her eustacian tubes.

    And take her to the doctor tomorrow. :)
