Sorry to hear about the feeling of ear bubbles in your daughter's ear.

The noises that you hear in your ears are as a result of the fluid in the middle ear becoming thickened, usually as the result of a cough or cold.

The crackling is due to the mucus moving within the middle ear.

Simple measures such as inhaling steam regularly can be very effective.

If this does not work, you should show her to a doctor to examine the ear and confirm the diagnosis.

The good news is that this is NOT likely to be a serious illness :0

Warm regards
