Q.

Sore Ears

Hi there,

My 3 year old is complaining of sore ears and I feel he cannot hear me properly. His tonsils are not swollen but he does have a slight runny nose. I have given him 5ml Panado for the pain, is there something else I can give him? Perhaps some ear drops? Which brand is good?

Thank you

I do not want you to treat your son's sore ears without him being seen by a doctor. Your son may have an ear infection and he may need an antibiotic.Panado is safe to use for his pain.
