Cold can cause ear block as there is a connection to ear from behind the nose called the eustachian tube.As children are used to sniff their nose instead of blowing the chances of ear infection is more in them. During night the ear drum can get ruptured and the infection can come out of the ears.
Next Steps
Consult an ENT surgeon for further management.
Health Tips
Cold in children should not be neglected as it can cause deafness if not treated correctly.
