As there is no fever or pain after touching the ear nothing to worry. Infants some times scrath their ears often and it is common. Dont try to keep anything in infants ears and dont allow water to go inside the ears while giving bath. Drooling is common around this age group and nothing to worry. Teething usually starts from the 6months of age.
