Cause:

Consequently, we suffer from earache. If water enters into the ear, earache starts. If mother milk fills into the ear while feeding milk to the child or water fills into the ear while bathing, ear ache starts. Ear ache starts because of vata, pitta and kapha according to some experienced persons. A child can be the victim of otalgia if gas creates in his stomach after drinking milk.
