Health Tip: Possible Signs of an Ear Infection

(HealthDay News) -- Ear infections are common in babies and young toddlers, who may not always be able to verbalize that something's wrong.

  • Pulling or tugging at the ear.
  • Crying frequently or acting very fussy.
  • Having trouble sleeping.
  • Running a fever, which is common in young children and infants.
  • Having fluid draining from the ear.
  • Seeming clumsy or having trouble balancing.
  • Having difficulty hearing or failing to respond to soft sounds.
