7 years old with ear pain. Given crocin. Not cured. What to do? - Online Doctor Chats
which i did,
however the ear pain has come back..
how long has she had the pain ?
a few hours now
Crocin DS can be given upto 3 times in a day
she complained of ear pain around 6 today
when was the last time , it was given ?
In that case, you can repeat the dosage now
and that should control the pain
But i gave her 5 ml at about 6, if i repeat now, it seems to me the pain will come back at around 2 A.M.
Since the pain is disturbing her sleep, you can consult with a doctor for a examination of the ear, tomorow
since it is giving releif for about 4 hours
is there nothing you can recommend which will give releif for longer?
the drug has a specific duration of action of 4 -6 hrs
after the ingestion
Otrivin, does not have any pain killer in it , so it will not help
so what about ibugesic?
isnt that supposed to give pain relief?
ibugesic , contains a medication similar to crocin DS
And has the same duration of action
Yes, it has Ibuprofen
am just worried that the pain will come back at midnight or later...
both Ibugesic and Crocin Ds, do not treat the underlying cause
they just numb the pain
so, until the underlying cause, like infection, is reduced, it will not be definitive
so whether i give crocin or Ibugesic, it will have hte same impact?
ok, so I have corcin DS suspension, or I have ibugesic plus. is there a preference of one over hte other?
also, can she take the medication on an empty stomach or only after food?
Do u have both the medications ?
yes, i do.
In such a case, you can Give her Ibugesic plus 7 ml
give that after food , and give her some more fluids to drink
any fluids? also should she be avoiding sour foods, etc?
should she avoid cold stuff, like cold water, juice, etc?
yes, avoiding cold water is better
but give her lemon juice, and fresh fruit juice
they contain Vit C , and will be helpful
ok, so orange is good, right? the fruit or the juice?
both , fruit or juice, both are effective
ok, will try to give her what you have recommended, and hopefully she will feel better..
You are welcome
I hope the same
take care and have a good night
you too doctor, good night. hopefully i wont be chatting with yet another doctor later in the night, due to her ear pain ...
