My oldest got constant ear infections as a baby; does that mean my newborn will as well?

No: Not necessarily! you may be able to take some precautions to reduce your baby's risk of getting ear infections. Breastfeeding helps to decrease the risk by helping your baby's immune system fight off upper respiratory infections. Also, try to limit your baby from feeding while completely flat-try to keep him upright. Also, avoid smoke exposure. Lastly, limiting exposure to colds decreases the risk.

What is the recovery time for bacterial contagious pinkeye treated with antibiotic eye drops?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology 52 years experience
Pinkeye: Most pinkeye is due to viral infection. The 40 or so viruses which can cause this have a symptom cycle of 3 to 10 days of activity until recovery except for the several that cause corneal immune deposits which can last longer. Antibiotic eyedrops do not treat viral disease but merely prevent secondary bacterial invasion. They do not alter the time cycle of the viral infection.
