Anyone else have experience with this? DS is 3 months and in the last day or so I've noticed a stink coming from inside both ears. No fever, lots of teething, slightly grumpier than normal but not bad. Just wondering if I need to be on the lookout for an infection....the stink is gross! Anyone else?

Perhaps the stink is from behind his ears? Our ds had the STINKIEST skin behind his ears since birth. It's better now, but still faintly there if he hasn't bathed for several days. When he was 3 mos. though, it could be quite nasty! I would scrub behind his ears with a soapy washcloth & then try to wipe/rub off as much of the dead skin back there as I could with the dry towel afterwards.

What a weird place to collect stink, 'eh?
