HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your son, if your main concern is tachycardia then it needs to be investigated for underlying cause, if it is the infection (Ear) then this may cause the febrile condition and it may cause the tachycardia, once the fever subsided heart rate comes to normal one,, in pediatric age little increase in heart rate could be common phenomenon and this is nothing to worry, without knowing the underlying cause and finding of pure tachycardia it can not be treated, hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful
