My daughter (12 months old) is having irritation in her right ear. She keeps rubbing her ear all the time and sometimes cries also.

Hi There are many causes for this. Common reasons are allergy, infection and foreign body or it could be even habitual. If the child is crying while rubbing her ears, or if it’s persistent, please take her to ENT surgeon/ Paediatrician as it has to be examined physically.
