ENT Specialist 's  Response
your baby seems to be having recurrent attacks of UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTION which may present with nasal congestion, runny nose, earache, ear discharge, with or without fever. It would be BEST to get her checked up by an ENT SPECIALIST. In the meantime you can start him on a saline nasal drop like Nasoclear/ Nasivion-S. Hope i have been able to be of some help.
