Discussions that mention motrin

Children's Health board

I have a 5 year old that was westling with his brothers...:mad: ...and he ended up banging his ear on a table. It's the top part of his ear, it's turned into a hematoma, it's very swollen, I try to put ice on it, but it hurts him, and I give him motrin. My question is, do you thing it'll be o.k for him to fly on a airplane in 2 days? Do you thing the pressure will hurt it worse? I have 2 nurses in my neighborhood, and they say he'll be fine. With tomorrow being the 4th of July, the doctor will not be in, and we are leaving wednesday.
