I hope by now it has calmed down ear pain is no fun
There are numbing drops that your doc can call in. My 2 year old just went
thru a bout of ear infections. She is an amazing baby ... only cries when
she is hurting. She SCREAMED for 14 hours.
3 min after putting the numbing drops in her ear ... she was fine. She also
took an antibiotic.
If your DD ears are extremely painful take her to the ER, ears are nothing
to mess with, she could have permeant hearing loss due to an infection that
goes untreated or if there is a delay in treatment. I know I do.
