Dear customer,

As she is having ear infection so you should have the antibiotics course complete to control the infection.The symptoms may be likley due to the ASOM.The commonly used oral antibiotics are augmentin, cephalexin etc.

She may also have the ear drops put into her affected ear to prevent the local infection.The children may require more water intake if they are suffering from fever and you may give her as per her demand since the water is an essential requirement for the body.

You should follow the doctor unless the infection is fully controlled.

thank you
