A 43-year-old member asked:

Does dairy in formula increase the frequency of ear infections and congestion?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Roy Benaroch
Pediatrics 27 years experience
No: That would be very rare. Dairy allergies can cause skin problems (hives or eczema), or more rarely gut problems (bloody diarrhea); there's also lactose intolerance, which occurs only in children and adults (never babies), which can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain. But food allergies very rarely cause nasal symptoms, congestion, or ear infections.

Unlikely: With a large proportion of s. Pneumonii (most common bacteria causing middle ear infection) becoming resistant to penicillin, the mainstay of antibiotics treatment for "ear infection" is currently a high dose of amoxicillin.

Pediatrics 33 years experience
Need full evaluation: A person with hearing problems since age 5 years will have had evaluations by her pediatrician or primary care doctor, been referred to an audiologist for complete testing, and been seen by an ENT doctor to find out if there is any correctable disorder causing the hearing problems. If these things have not been done, she should write down her story and take it to her primary care doctor to start.

Dr. Thomas Robbins
Family Medicine 10 years experience
Check-up: How high is fever? What colors is drainage from nose? There could be many causes. Illness in children is most likely a virus and symptomatic control is usually all that is needed. I would advise you to a make an appointment with his pediatrician if you are concerned.

See an eye doctor: Swelling and pain around the eye may be caused by an infection. If left untreated, it can potentially get into the eye socket and even the brain. Your aunt should be evaluated by an eye doctor immediately.
