Their immune systems are immature, and their little ears don't drain as well as adults’ ears do. Swimmer’s EarIt's an infection in the outer ear that usually happens when the ear stays wet long enough to breed germs.
But even if your kid hasn’t been swimming, a scratch from something like a cotton swab (or who knows what they stick in there?) can cause trouble. How Doctors Diagnose Ear InfectionsThe only way to know for sure if your child has one is for a doctor to look inside her ear with a tool called an otoscope, a tiny flashlight with a magnifying lens. Fluid in the EarIf the Eustachian tube gets blocked, fluid builds up inside your child’s middle ear.
Your doctor may look inside your child’s ear with an otoscope, which can blow a puff of air to make his eardrum vibrate.
Bursting an EardrumIf too much fluid or pressure builds up inside the middle ear, the eardrum can actually burst (shown here). Unless it happens a lot, your child’s hearing should be fine.  Ear Infection SymptomsThe main warning sign is sharp pain. Babies may push their bottles away because pressure in their ears makes it hurt to swallow.


Home CareWhile the immune system fights the ear infection, you can ease any pain your child feels. Non-prescription painkillers and fever-reducers, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, are also an option. AntibioticsEar infections often go away on their own, so don’t be surprised if your doctor suggests a "wait and see" approach. ComplicationsIf your child’s ear infections keep coming back, they can scar his eardrums and lead to hearing loss, speech problems, or even meningitis.
Ear TubesFor kids who get a lot of ear infections, doctors sometimes put small tubes through the eardrums. Tonsils Can Be the CauseSometimes a child’s tonsils get so swollen that they put pressure on the Eustachian tubes that connect her middle ear to her throat -- which then causes infections.
Tips to Prevent InfectionsThe biggest cause of middle ear infections is the common cold, so avoid cold viruses as much as you can. Also, keep your child away from secondhand smoke, get her a flu shot every year, and breastfeed your baby for at least 6 months to boost her immune system.
Allergies and Ear InfectionsLike colds, allergies can also irritate the Eustachian tube and lead to middle ear infections. If you can’t keep your child away from whatever’s bothering him, consider an allergy test to figure out his triggers.
