Though earaches occur with the common cold and the flu, sometimes a middle ear infection (otitis media) can occur as a secondary symptom.
Persistent ear pain is a sign of ear infection, which requires immediate medical care. Left untreated, Ear infections can lead to long-term damage from permanent hearing loss to a ruptured eardrum.
Some symptoms of ear infection include:
- Loss of appetite
- Poor Sleep

- Drainage from the ear
