Recurrent otitis: should be assessed by an ENT specialist with the possibility of PE tube placement. Each insurance policy is different and you need to check specifically with your insurance provider regarding payment and coverage. Self pay is always an option but can be quite costly.

Not necessarily: Family history - mother's and father's, and sibling's - can suggest a predilection for ear infections, but it is only a tendency, not definite. If there is a family history, monitor closely.

OTC or Rx: You can start with simple over the counter antihistamines like claritin, zyrtec, Allegra (get generic store brands to save money). If those don't work, your next step is to start with your pcp and you may benefit from nasal steroid sprays (flomase, nasonex, (mometasone) rhincort)!or antihistamine nasal sprays (astepro, astelin, patanase).

Is it possible to have lasik eye surgery to correct vision problems caused by an eye injury?

Unlikely: If he eye injury was severe enough to change the focus of the eye, you likely are not an ideal candidate for lasik. Sometimes, with limited scarring of the cornea prk can be used to clear the cornea - this is lasik without the flap performed directly on the anterior corneal surface.

Return to your Docto: If pain is not better after few seats of antibiotics, you either have the wrong antibiotics or something else is causing the pain, so you better return to be checked.
