Ooze in ear!

My 5 month old (and 19 month old) has has a yucky cough and runny nose for a few days now, this morning when we woke up I noticed a bunch of ear wax just caked on, in and around her ear....does this mean that her ear is draining? Is this a sign of infection?

  • Call your pediatrician. They will let you know if you need to take baby in. It is very common for a cold in a newbie to turn into an ear infection.
