earche Lock Rss

My 3 /12 year old is getting over a common cold and this afternoon is complaining of an ear ache. It's to late to get a Dr appointment today and I don't know how serious it is. can ear aches come and go? or do the become an ear infection if untreated? I've never had to deal with this before, is ther anything else I can do other than panadol to help the situation?
thank-you

Hi there
Nasel congestion from a cold can cause ears to ache. An ear infection will present with a high temp and the child is usually crying in pain.
I would see how she is felling in the morning and if you have any concerns take her to the Dr.
