Hi,thanks for query.Baby first-cause of ear pain could some boil or infection inside the ear.Most commonly upper respiratory infection also can lead to this.You can give her acetaminophen syrup for this as per her weight.
Now your case-streak of blood with cough in morning is most of case is due to bad throat.As you have swelling and irritation in your throat there is friction when the cough comes out,so a streak of blood comes along with it.Take light diet,avoid spicy and cold foods.bye.

I have a film on the roof of my mouth now there is a nasty film on tongue with a blister. I was diagnoised with gastroparesis and am currently taking meds for acid reflux. My ears hurt. I had sinus surgery in May. I thought maybe it was gerd. I ve been to the ENT specialist, gas specialist, and primary. I m losing my patience. I was told me ears are clear, and told to double intake of acid reflux medicine?

Hi I went to the doctor with extreme pain in my ear and headaches. Come to find out I had an ear infection and received medication. After three weeks I still have popping in my left year and called my doctor for an opinion. She told me that it appears I have TMJ and gave me several medications to take to help ease the pain. Its been a month and the popping and headache is still there. Every once in a while there is discharge. Could it be something else or should I contact my dentist??

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
