No: There is no such thing as Amoxicillin ear drops. Amoxicillin is an oral antibiotic. It is not unusual to get ear pain with an upper respiratory infection. Check for fever. Generally ear pain will resolve within 24 hours. Give him a pain reliever. If he starts running high fevers or pain does not resolve, than call his doctor to be seen. ...Read more

Hi, I have an ear infection and my ear drum ruptured.I've been on amoxicillin and antibiotic ear drops for 3 days. How long till ear stops draining?

This was released as drainage started.As the antibiotic begins to kill off the germ, the reason for drainage declines and eventually stops. Persistence of drainage after a week would be unusual and prompt a call to your doc. ...Read more

Blocked ear: It is difficult to say. It appears that you are being treated for both otitis media and otitis externa. If there is fluid in the middle ear, you will have difficulty traveling by air. The most difficult part will be landing. You really should see your doctor prior to traveling and see if your condition has improved. There are other treatments that can be used for eustachian tube dysfunction. ...Read more

Ear pain: Try the ear drops first. Avoid oral antibiotics if possible. Drink plenty of fluids and pop the ears 30 to 40 times a day and the ear infection or fluid will resolve. Good luck and have a good weekend. ...Read more
