Take medicine: Ear infections beyond childhood are less common but a reality for a variety of reasons. If you had symptoms and was diagnosed after an exam by a qualified doctor, you should follow the recommendation and return to clinic to make sure your earis better. If no improvement in symptom after 3-4 days, return sooner for change of antibiotic. Feel Good!
