Brief Answer:
Your son is most probably having Impacted Ear wax or Ear infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

I have read your query and understand your concern.

As per your clinical history it appears that your son are most probably having Impacted Ear wax or Ear infection Or refer ear pain due to cold & cough .

If I were your treating doctor , I would advice to consult ENT specialist for Ear examination to know cause of ear pain .

Till then use anti inflammatory Syrup like Combiflam 8 ml thrice daily for pain &
Ear drop Ciplox-D 3 drop five times daily &
Syrup Xyzal M 8 ml at night .

He will get relief .
You will need prescription for medication .

Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
