Ear infection: Yes, you can. All medical therapies (ie, decongestants, antihistamines, mucolytics, nsaids) have not provided measurable short- or long-term improvements in patients with ear infection only antibiotics therapy has provided measurable benefits. You have to see your pediatrician soon.

Consult an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist and request that her adenoids be removed.Ear infections will be rare after that. A well ventilated middle ear is require by nature.
