What causes glue ear?
Glue ear is more common in winter and more common in boys than girls. Many children can get glue ear because of:
- A cold
- An ear infection
- Allergies to pets, pollen or dust
Passive smoking may also cause glue ear in some children. Some children with palate problems, such as a cleft palate, can keep getting glue ear.
