Q.

Possible Ear infection?

Hi Doc,

My LG 7monhs old now, likes scratching behind her right ear. Sometimes she scratches very hard as if there' s somethin irritating her and im starting to get concerned. Could it be an ear infection?

Thanx Doc in advance

This does not sound like she has an ear infection. It is more likely that she is developing some eczema behind her ear. Have a look and see if you can see rash there.If she has a rash apply a little Mylocort ointment to the area once daily.
