I saw dark red and smelly discharge in my 2 year old child's ear. She seemed fined the she day, what could it mean?

Haven't seen this: but it may relate to the fact that you list both oxycodone and hydrocodone as your medications. It is NOT a good idea to consume any alcohol while on opiate analgesics, because alcohol may increase the potential for central nervous system depression, as well as that of histamine release, which is the usual cause of the symptoms you are describing. If you are breastfeeding, discuss with your doc. ...Read more
