Re: My 6yo DS seems to be losing his hearing

Well, I took him in to urgent care last night because he was getting worse very quickly. The Dr said "worst double ear infection he's ever seen". Im so glad I took him in, but I'm so confused at why there was no pain or fever!

I call them silent ear infections. None of my boys had fevers or pain with their that they could tell. It was very hard to diagnose or know when they had one. Glad you found out and got it taken care of.

I agree. I have to clean my kids ears every single day or its super built up. and I mean I get in there with a q tip. none of this wash cloth on the outside stuff. we make some waxy eared kids and its gross. make sure its clean, that alone can cause hearing loss as well as equalibrium changes

oh geez, I see the infection. yikes. glad you caught that!!
