How can I tell when my 6 month old baby has fluid in his ear after he's had an ear infection and taken all antibiotics as he keeps pulling at ear how?
See below. It is not too uncommon that infant continues pulling at ear even after ear infection subsides. As long as infant remains afebrile and playful, "wait and watch" approach for 2 weeks is reasonable. The fluid accumulated in middle ear as a part of ear infection takes 2-4 weeks to clear up after acute inflammation subsides.
My 6 month old baby has had dark hard wax coming out if his ear for the past 2 weeks he also had an ear infection and was on antib- should I worry?
Not to worry. It is great the hard wax is coming out of his ears on its own ! finish the antibiotics and follow up with your pediatrician as scheduled . If you are still concerned , address this at follow up . Read more...
