Lisa Shen-Vasen, MD, a pediatrician with The Everett Clinic discusses ear infections which affect children throughout the year, especially in winter. Changes in treatment suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggest that ear infections and pain should instead be monitored for 48-72 hours without prescription as long as children are comfortable and do not have a fever . Pain management may include ibuprofen, Tylenol and ear numbing drops. Overall, fewer antibiotic prescriptions are given unless they are needed.
