Ear infections

Well it turns out that my daughter not only has thr croup, but a massive ear infection!! She never let on that her ear hurt, no pulling, no redness, no tenderness nada. The only reason I found this out was I took er to her doctor for a follow up and that I couldn't seem to get her temp down. Oh wait a mintute, that shoulda been a clue, but I thought it was due to the croup thing. The croup just sounds silly to me, oh well. Anyway, is there any other tell signs that she is having a ear infection???

  • My daughter always just pulled at her ear...that, a temp, and crankiness clued me in.
