EAR PAIN IN CHILDREN AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

Ear pain is managed by treating the underlying cause. Treatment is usually for the underlying cause. For example infections of the ear are managed with antibiotics. Foreign bodies in the ear or wax impaction may be removed. Pain medications may be given to ease the pain. Cold packs may ease the pain in some children.
