Thank you for your query.

I am afraid that to the best of my knowledge there is no treatment in ayurvedic medicine to control the infection. You can give her ayruvedic medicine to increase her resistance but I doubt that there will be for a 8 month old baby.

Please continue with antibiotics so that the infection gets controlled and surgery is undertaken at the earliest.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
