any drainage from his eyes? My son's only symptoms for ear infections has been a little yellow drainage from his eyes and swelling underneath them.
when he was much younger he had a plugged tear duct and his eyelid swelled up, it was an infection from the tear duct.

sounds like allergies or pink eye.

Have you called the doctor yet? If not, do. The first time my daughter had an ear infection, swollen eyes were her main symptom. The fluid had gotten all backed up and was puffing the bottom of her eyes. She needed antibiotic shots. Good luck.

Allergy? Have you tried a cool wet washcloth? I know that's hard with a baby, but if that doesn't take the swelling down, call the pediatrician and see if it would be okay to give baby some benadryl in case it's an allergic reaction. Are babys lips swollen? Is there a rash behind the ears or on his/her butt? Are babys fingernail/toenail beds bluish?
