How do I know if my 5 moth old girl has ear infection and how do I ease the pain?

My baby girl has been crying non-stop all day. She doesn't want to eat and screams her little body into a spasm when I lay her down. I was told it is most likely ear infection, but I also think she is starting to teeth. What is going on?

Take her to the doctor. Unless a doctor tells you it is an ear infection, then it does not count.

If it's an ear infection you should take her to the doctors to have them confirm, that way they can start treating it with antibiotics.

If her ears are red and she's pulling at them, it could be an ear infection. Is her nose stuffy too? Have you checked her gums to see if they're a little swollen? if she's teething her gums may have a couple of little whitish bumps showing.
