    Call the dr.. they have a nurse line. They can tell you what to do. Alot of the time, if it's an ear infection, they want to see them as soon as they can. Is he running a temp?

    keep a good eye on his temp, because with ear infections usually comes a fever. em had an ear infection in both ears and had a temp of 102.1 when i got her to the doctor. if his temp goes over 100.7 take him to the ER.

    also, if he gets REALLY fussy, like wakes up crying, def take him to the ER. they will give him amoxicillan if he does have it. one way to avoid it is to use hats that cover his ears.

    he's been fussy and he'll lay on his side i guess to help the pain. but his temp is 99.6 so sad

    That's a low grade temp, I'd take him in.

    I'd take him to an Urgent Care if there is one - it'll save you time in the ER. But if he's stays the same - I'd take him in. Better safe than sorry!

    Just got back from the ER, Hunter is fine, they checked his ears and they both looked fine, I asked them why he would be rubbing them and rolling on his side..they said he may just be trying to get comfortable. His fever went down after I gave him his tylenol. If it reaches over 100 Im suppose to take him back in. For now, Im glad he's okay. I hope it stays that way.
