Anyone know if this is an ear infection?

This is rather vague but for the last week or so DD (11 mths) has become very grizzly in the afternoons. She has a lunchtime nap, wakes up and then moans all afternoon. She's always scratching her right ear and the last 2 nights she's been up in the night crying. She's had diarrhoea the last 3 days but only in the afternoon and she's got pretty bad nappy rash (but has done for ages now, not sure what causes that!). I've read infections clear up after 2-3 days so it might not be that but she's not herself at the mo. She also stopped bfing about the time she started with the afternoon grizzle sessions. Should I take her to the GP?

Ear infections do not always clear up by themselves. Also a sore throat/ tonsilitis can cause pain in the ears too. I would have them looked at to make sure she is still v young. smile
