My 13 month old has been rubbing at both ears all day. He stops playing and puts his hands up to his head and rubs them over his ears looking a bit cross. I tried gently pressing on each ear in turn to see if he reacted in pain. He didn't like it, but didn't seem like he was in a lot of pain from it. He is otherwise well.
Is it ear infections? Or could it be something else?
I'm afraid I've only realised once the ear has started weeping. Both my DD's have had them and I didn't notice them pulling at ears, they were just generally unsettled particularly at night when lying down. Only realised what the problem was the following morning when the eardrum had burst.
Both have recovered well and hearing seems fin BTW.
