My husband (not knowing I already had) gave my 4 year old son an extra dose of zithromax. Should we be concerned?

No: One extra dose is not going to cause anything except a little upset stomach at most, and more likely no adverse reaction whatsoever. Don't fret. Glad you both are concerned enough to make sure he got his dose of antibiotic.

For a bacterial chest infection, is zithromax better than erithromycin for a healthy 39 year old with no other health problems?

Not necessarily: The main benefit of zithromax over Erythromycin would be tolerability. Erythromycin can sometimes be a little harder on the stomach or be less tolerated. Both medications will effectively treat the infection, but zithromax would be better tolerated.

Ear infection: Sounds more like complications from the ear infection and NOT an allergic reaction to the medications. I would simply watch her - make sure she has something on board for fever. I suspect as the infection clears this will as well. Good luck
