Hi there ~

She does seem to also have an infection in her eye. Amoxicillin will take care of her ear infection and may also take care of her eye infection. However, visiting with an ophthalmologist so as to get some local antibiotics either creams or eye drops prescribed would be helpful.

I hope this helps. Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery. Take care and have a nice day !
