Pediatrician 's  Response

thanks for writing to health care magic

i think your child is having acute suppurative otitis media

a ear infection

you do not do any dressing to the ear in this condition

infact it is required to keep the ear dry

treating physician may prescribe antibiotics in such scenario

if there is a pain behind the ear, or abnormal behaviour or repeated vomitings its a emergency and you should consult the pediatrician

hope this helps

take care
