What should I do if I think my child has glue ear?


If you think your child may have glue ear, you need to take them to see your GP. At the first visit, your GP will:

  • Examine your child’s ears for signs of glue ear
  • Ask questions to find out if your child’s hearing has been affected
  • Assess your child’s hearing indirectly, because few doctors’ practices have the equipment and staff to carry out proper hearing tests
