When your child catches or has a cold and starts having ear pain, it is usually acute inflammation of the middle ear. If the child is active he or she may be in pain, there is no need to panic. You may give him or her some painkiller or anti-fever medicine, then visit an ENT clinic during office hours. But please visit a nearby pediatrician as soon as possible if the child seems lethargic.

When small children catch a cold, it’s easy to get middle ear infection. However, they have a hard time expressing to parents what is wrong with them. If fluid leaks from your child’s ear, you may be able to see it easily. But you also may miss the condition, then leave it without proper treatment. In this case, the condition can develop into chronic serous inflammation of the middle ear. So please come visit us to check your child’s ears especially when he or she catches a cold.

Coins can get stuck in the throat and may be impossible to remove because children’s throats are narrow and small.
