Hi, first give her a course of antibiotic, a mucolytic, steam inhalatin, paediatric nose drop ,valsalva maneuvre, try this for 7-15 days.

IF still problem persists.

THEN first plan for tonsilloadenidectomy( if tonsils r also enlarged).
Again give her a course of above medicines for 15 days.
Then get a tympanometry done, I m sure it will come out to be normal A type, means no surgery for glue ear.

Homeopath Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy's  Response
Your kid is having enlarged tonsils and accumulation of fluid. First I would like to tell that due to his over susceptibility he is prone to always tonsils attack and also due to the same allergic susceptibleness he is getting ottitis condition opr what you are saying accumulation of fluid behind ear. Tonsils are nothing but protecting gland that helps to prevent any infection to go deep inside respiratory tract. mucus secretion behind the ear drum is due his body allergic tendency. These are just the external manifestation of symptoms. Nothing else. If we will go on operating the symptoms then the internal disease condition will show symptoms at any other organ. So to treat the disease from its root level can cure the problem permanently.. no ned for any operation.. in homeopathy this frequent cold cough adenoids ottitis can be cured completely with constitutional with clinical integrated homeopathy treatment. thank you
