Re: How do you deal with earache?

It actually could just be normal swelling/draining that happens when you get a cold.

I have sensitive ears, and if I get a cold, my ears hurt. The cold goes away, and then the pain subsides within a day or two.

I probably wouldn't do anything unless it starts to get infected. You can always try a heating pad on the sore ear, but that might be a bit much for a kid.

I have heard of others putting warm olive oil in their ears, or hydrogen peroxide. But I think that is more for wax issues. Though the oil might help ease the pain a bit.
