  • take him to the dr he probably has a ear infection. Meijer offers free amoxicilian so that would be the best case scenario if you have a Meijer around you

  • At his age it is more than likely an ear infection. Def. take him to the doctor. Ear infection can damage hearing if not treated properly and promptly!

  • Well it could be an ear infection - those can be pretty painful. I would suggest getting your child in to the doctor and have it looked at. Also - try putting a warm wet washcloth on the ear. That helped my son when he woke up at 4am and we were waiting for the doctors office to open.
