Sticking his fingers in his ears?

My LO is almost 14 months old and about 3 weeks ago he was diagnosed with double ear infections and given antibiotics. Before we realized he was sick he was  poking in his ears. Well, it is 3 weeks later and he is still doing it? I figured it was related to his infection, and so I don't know if maybe he still has  an infection, or if it is unrelated?

my son does that also. Hes 3 now and wont stop. He had tubes put into his ears the tubes fell out. THey want to put tubes back in his ears, but i am afraid it will do more damage then what its worth.

 

I cant get my son to stop. HE will walk around with his whole ear pushed in. and he also gets it to squeak

my youngest has alwasys had a problem with ear infections.  you child very well may a ear infection still. They don't always clear up the first going around. Also having tubes put in again( after they fallen out) will not do anymore harm. ear infections are not something to play around. if left untreated  it will affect their hearing.  we are looking at her having to get a hearing aide ( maybe) after the next hearing test. She just had one ear surgery right before thanksgiving. the ear infection wasn't clearing up. come to find out that there were two growths.

Right I know that. But they said that if you have the tubes put in again there will be a chance that it will mess up his ear drum and the hole will never close.

Sorry you are going through this, but to be honest if my kids had just stuck to the ears i could whave handled it. You would NEVER believe what they have stuck other places!!!!!
