So, he started with rubbing fingers together, and last week he started to cover his ears and then move his hands on them a little bit. Well, we were eating lunch and he put his hands on his ears and started hitting them. He was covering his whole ear while doing it on both sides. He took the fork to eat and was taking his one hand and went back and forth with his ears because his right hand had a fork. He finally stopped after a little bit.
My question is, does anyone know if he could hurt his ears by hitting them like that? I think I'm going to call his primary doctor to see if she can check his ears just in case. I don't know what else to do. Any advice would be great. Thanks ladies.
Thanks everyone. But there is no infection. Just a behavior. She asked if he is getting all his services that he needs. So, I went over all the services. She said that is all he needs. That it is most likely a behavior. I did ask if he can hurt his ears. She said most likely he can't.
