He started crying last night around 5 and didn't stop until he fell asleep at 7. When I went to bed at 8:30 he was burning up with fever. 102-103 and crying. He woke up around 7 am and was still burning with fever. He was acting like he was in pain so I gave him a motrin. 4-5 hours later he started crying ow and saying his head hurt. I tried to take his temperature with the ear thermometer and he cried and said ow when I tried to put it in. I looked with an otoscope (for the first time, I need more practice) and saw that it looked pink and might have a small perforation. So pain and fever are his only symptoms. He's eating and drinking fine.
I'm putting garlic oil in his ears, how long should I try that before going in? Anything else I should try?
