Q.

Hep doctor


My baby is 7month old, she has one teeth, and other shinning out, the problem is that she is touching her left ear all the time and sometimes crying. She was admitted in the hospital 2 weeks ago for 2 days for little bronco pneumonia and was given antibiotic via IV, what could be the cause of her touching the ear? Is it the teething or should I take her to doctor?

Thank you in advance

I don't think that teeething is causing your baby to pull on her ear. She may have an infection of her left ear. Please ask your doctor to see her.
