Brief Answer: Need to get her ears examined Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. You need to get her ears examined as ear infections are pretty common in this age group. If positive you might need antihistamines and albuterol or salbutamol syrup with antibiotics. If ear examination is negative antibiotics may not be required. Wishing your kid speedy recovery.
