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 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??

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?
