Q.

Ear Pulling

I have a 5 month old baby boy. He seems to have sore ears. It has got perticularly bad at the moment, he does not want to sleep, has a congested nose and seems like he is also teething. He seems to favour pulling the left ear more then the right ear. I am getting worried as his left ear is becoming quite red.

Please help !!

Dear Juliette

It is very possible that the little one might be teething. It is quite common for babies to get ear ache when they are teething. We do need to make sure that it hasn't turned into ear infection though, in which case he will need antibiotics. I recommend that you take him to your GP and have it seen to as soon as possible.
