Child has yellow pus, no pain or discomfort. Reason?

My new born is 50 days old. Am seeing yellow puss from her right ear for the last 3-4 days. She is not showing any kind of discomfort or pain. She is drinking milk on regular intervals n also having ample sleep. Can i know why puss is coming from her right ear? She sleeps with her head turned on right side so that the infected ear is pressed down on her sheet. We consulted a dr. And he prescribed Phexin antibiotics . We started giving her the medicibe from yest morn onwards 3 times a day. Half filler mixed with breast milk . Even on medication i didnt find my baby s infection reduced. Today morning also saw puss from her ears. What can be the reason and is there anything serious?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Your child has a bad ear infection.This is a rare side effect of breastfeeding.
Your child needs a powerful antibiotic like amoxycillin-clavulanic acid combination syrup for 10 days at least.
The pus should stop after 5 days.The child will need a mild antihistaminic drop too.
Prevent water from going into her ears during baths.
After she recovers get her hearing tests done after few months.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
