One red ear--reaction?
My 5-yr-old PA son had one red, hot ear tonight. He gets this sometimes in the summer when he's been bitten by a mosquito, but there are no bugs around now, and I didn't see a bump. I'm concerned because we were at a friend's house for dinner and he had a little shrimp. I'm not even sure if he ate any of it, or if he just had a little of the sauce it was cooked in. I don't like seafood so we never have it at home. Has anyone seen a reaction where one ear just turns red and hot? Any other ideas of what it could be? I just gave him benadryl and will check on him soon.
