My toddler (18mos) used to get a ton of ear infections. With flu/cold season coming again...I know it could start allllll over again. My question is - is there any tool or instrument that you can buy at a drug store that you can use to look in your child's ears to check for ear infections?
When he's had ear infections in the past, he showed NONE of the signs - ear pulling, etc. So, I feel like if I don't get him checked every time he gets a cold, there could be one there and I would never know. But, I hate to spend a $25 copay 2x's a month when nothing is even wrong! I would love to be able to "prescreen" it myself at home somehow. My friend told me stores used to sell something like this - do they still?
