The doctor may give your child eardrops if he or she has an outer ear infection. For middle ear infection, a course of antibiotics is usually given together with medication to ease your child’s pain and fever. For children with glue ear, tubes (grommets) may be inserted to prevent fluid from accumulating in the middle ear; this helps to restore the child’s hearing. If your child has had recurrent ear infections, he or she may need a hearing test.
