Does teething make my baby's ears sensitive?

She's getting some back teeth in. Could that be why her ears are so sensitive? She doesn't have an ear infection, but she's digging at them a lot lately.

  • Yes!!! Everything in the jaw is connected. Connected to the ears, connected to the full jaw, connected to the head...etc.

  • could be.. maybe an allergy? i took my daughter to an ear nose and throat specialist not only did she have congestion issues, but an ear infection(that was not detected earlier by the pedi) and she had allergy . turns out the doctor thinks mango, bananas and strawberries cause allergies that affect the ears.
