With a cold, earache occurs when the Eustachian tube between the ear and the throat becomes
blocked with mucus. This will usually settle after a few days but infection can occur and may cause
a discharge from the ear.

Give paracetamol for the pain.

Contact your doctor if the earache persists for more than three days, if the ear is discharging, or if the
pain is very severe.
