Ear infections are not contagious but what causes them can be. For example if the child has a cold and develeoped an ear infection the cold is contagious but not the ear infection.

I don't think so. They are caused by excessive moisture in the ear, they can't catch that from anyone else.

Like SonyaM said...the ear infection isn't contagious, but the cause like a cold is. Your child could catch the cold, but not have it develop into and ear infection too.
