Children’s Ear Infections

November 7th, 2006

Recognizing ear infections in children

You may start to notice that your child is irritable, tugging at their ear, not sleeping well, has a fever, or has thick yellow drainage from their ear. Any or all of these symptoms may indicate that your child has an ear infection, also known as Otitis Media. These symptoms may occur 2 to 7 days after a cold or other respiratory infection. Bacteria cause 65% to 75% of ear infections and the rest are caused by viral infections.
