Daughter's Ear Problem After Long Run
VolleyballGirl posted:
My middle school daughter, had a mile run today. She is usually athletic and isn't either overweight nor underweight. She described that her ears felt clogged for 5 minutes after the run, she could vaguely hear what her P.E. teacher was saying. She wanted to improve her mile time and barely made it. It was her option to do this, and I support her, but I am worried about her ears. Occasionally she will also tell me that the inside of her ears will start itching after she eats random types of fruit. At first, we thought it was just an excuse not to eat healthy, but then we realised that it was actually itching. She kept poking at her ear, and saying that it itched way more than a mosquito bite. Advice?

You should have her see her doctor today. Go ahead and call the doctor's office and get her in. Rich
