Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I have seen your grandson right ear picture .
He is having inflammation of right ear due to infection or allergy .
If I were your grandson treating doctor, I would advice him topical antibiotic+steroid ointment & syrup azithromycin .You can give benadryl . Also cut his all nails .
Certainly above treatment will give you much relief but if relief is not upto satisfaction level then consultation with your ENT doctor will become essential.
Hope this information helpful to you .If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Regards.

Background: 30 y.o. female with hx of IBS, chronic abdominal pain (past 7 years). Recently began a course of antibiotics (azithromycin) for bacterial URI. During the course of antibiotics I noticed that intestinal gas now has an extremely offensive, putrid odor: intolerable. Question: Is this related to the antibiotics?
