Ear Infections in Toddlers

Ear Infections in Toddlers

Unfortunately, the winter season becomes a time of where many kids develop ear infections. It’s hard for parents to see their child go through so much pain and they often don’t know how to help them. Kids In The House interviewed pediatrician Jay Gordon to find out what causes and how to treat ear infections in toddlers.

 Dr. Gordon explains that either a virus or bacteria can cause an ear infection. “The eardrum bulges and it hurts, so I recommend that if the parents are sure the eardrum is intact, not perforated, they can put a few drops of mullein oil,” he said.

The doctor also urges parents to wait until they treat the ear infection with antibiotics. “The American Academy of Pediatrics, the British Academy of Pediatrics all recommend that ear infections not be treated with antibiotics during the first three days because you tend to create resistance bacteria when you treat ear infections over and over,” he explained.
