Common problem: Many babies will have fluid left behind the eardrum for weeks after the germ is killed.That can produce a fealing fullness like when you are flying and need to pop your ears. Babies can also fail at treatment or re-infect. I encourage a followup visit to check the ear about 3-4 wks from the start of treatment in infants to be sure it worked.
