    A fine tube called eustachian tube travels from the 2nd upper molar tooth to the ear canal.
    In children this tube is relatively straightened and short.So if an infected pacifier is used;it will infect not only throat...but also affects the ear.
    Ear infections are more common in children than in adults.
