Earache and ear pain is common, particularly in young children. It can be painful, but is not usually a sign of anything serious.

How long earache lasts

  • It depends on what's causing it. Most earaches in children are caused by an ear infection, which usually start to improve after a few days.
  • If there is a bacterial infection as an underlying cause- pharmacists can if appropriate supply ear drops or antibiotics after clinical assessment.
