Inner Ear infection

My child still has an inner ear infection and holds her ears and has vomited a couple of times. The doctor can't see her untill tomorrow. And they are probably going to recommend us for tubes this time. Any ideas on how to soother until tomorrow?

  • Yes my youngest had 6 ear infections in six months time and his pediatrician said garlic drops in the ear really helps. He did finally get tubes though.

  • I was told to do medicine like tyolnal or even earache drops or even just a simple ice pack numbs the pain.

  • My DD had similiar issues and until she had her tubes there was not much we could do to help comfort her.
