Anyone have any tips on how to stop earache? 3 year old up screaming most of night, calpol doesn't seem to help at all!!

it's got to be the doctor

unless you stop the calpol and let the infection sort itself out quicker

but it sounds really bad and you wouldn't want a burst ear drum

apparently they are allowed nurofen as well though

i must say, if your child is in such agony that calpol doesn't help at all then it must be serious enough for antib's

i wouldn't just try more pain suppression without getting to the root of it

I found in the past that a hot water bottle eases the pain in my dd.
