Doctor removed lots of wax from one ear, but couldn t clear the other and said the eardrum appears dark. We are scheduled to see ENT in one week. Meanwhile, he is on augmentin 825 mg.

HI I have gone through your mail, as you said your child has popping in ears and after removing lot of wax your doctor said that ear drum of child is dark , By considering the version of your doctor means your child has acute otitis media and his ear drums are congested. you are advice to go for (1) X-Ray paranasal sinuses, Audiometery and approach to an E.N.T.specialist for better care as this case demands specialist care. Thanks.
