Hi Dr. Abraham,
This is usually due to the faulty feeding habits, do not feed the child while lying on the bed and always feed the child in the upright position and keep the head elevated. The ventilating tube in the children will be horizontal and short, in the lying down position milk easily enters into the tube and cause middle ear infection
. Avoid oral medications as it will subside once the feeding technique is corrected, can continue the ear drops. Please avoid clotrimazole
ear drops, it is used only during fungal infection
. Better to consult a good ENT surgeon n get thoroughly evaluated.
