Baby fell on his head from the bed

Hi Doc, my baby fell 2 days ago from our bed, i took him to the clinics emergency unit as it was after 10pm, they said he is ok. The followin night, he was crying continuously for about 3 hours, i took him in again, and they checked him and said he has an ear infection as well as throat infection. This is now after 4 days of him caughing. How long does it ussually take for the ears to heal because he is still touching them at night?

I assume that your baby was gven an antibiotic for his ear infection. The infection usually heals in about 2 days.
