My 4 years son has an ear pain for more than 3 hours, he also has cold and cough... Could you please advise if we can take amoxicillin ear drops?

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?

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?

Hard to predict: The initial drainage was likely triggered by the pressure caused by buildup of mucous and pus behind the ear drum. 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

Ive had an ear infection for 4 days. My oral temperature is 99.1. Is that okay? Im hot and sweaty.I'm taking ear drops, amoxicillan, and dexamethason.

Ive had an ear infection for 4 days. My oral temperature is 99.1. Is that okay? Im hot and sweaty.I'm taking ear drops, amoxicillan, and dexamethason.

Probably: The body has a day/night cycle so a mild elevated temperature at night midway thru infection is ok. Dexamethasone is a steroid used by some to reduce inflammation. Don't list age or other medical conditions but I advise caution in using this medication due to potential side effects and cross reaction to other medications. Give it a few more days but if not better contact your MD. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dexamethasone ...Read more

I have been on neomycin drops and amoxicillin fir a few days for a outer ear infection. Ut still getting discharge only at night no pain what's goin on?

Still normal: A bit of drainage is still normal if you are just a few days into treatment. That's why you need to continue your medications until they are finished. On rare occasions, you may need ENT to clean out some of that debris, but usually not considered until you have finished your course of medication. If the pain is gone, sounds like you are making appropriate progress. ...Read more

Over the last six week's I have experience pain in my left ear and left side of my head. I have been taken co-amoxicillin. I scared as this has been  ?

Sinus? Jaw?: Need a diagnosis. Pain in the ear could be due to acute ear infection that can respond to antibiotics, but it could be due to something else. How were you diagnosed and when did you start the antibiotic? If it is a sinus infection, then a long course of treatment is sometimes required, but I feel that CT-sinus scan and ENT evaluation is warranted to rule out mimickers. Could be jaw, gland, etc. ...Read more
