Earache in children

Earache is the third biggest reason for consulting paediatrics, after the common cold and periodic health check-up. 

Earache appears when there is an inflammation, otitis. There are three types of otitis:

  • External: affects the external auditory canal
  • Suppurative otitis media: produced by accumulation of fluid that normally does not lead to infection. That is, there is no pain or redness in the area, nor any symptoms.
  • Acute otitis media
