Six weeks pregnant. Had Macrobid for bladder infection. Will it help for ear pain?
I'm 6weeks pregnant with my second child. I just started an antibioti today called Macrobid for a bladder infection. I took a nap with my son earlier and when I woke up, I couldn't hear out of my left ear and my ear hurts so bad I'm in tears. Will the Macrobid help my ear if its an infection and I've heard to put urine in your ear for pain, will urine work and is it safe?
Hello, I have heard for the first time this innovative idea of putting urine in ears , ----they are all rubbish ideas please do not do that. If may create more problems by causing infections. even fungal infection may develop which will be difficult to treat. Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) may not help in ear infections. You can have ENT consultation to first get ruled out that there is ear infection or not . or just ear wax which is causing pain. Till then you can take Steam inhalations , Xylomatazoline nasal drops to be used in nose --these drops will help in decreasing the pressure or fluid behind the ear drum.
