Suggest medication for ear infection.

Day 6 of Amoxicillan for a nasty ear infection, no relief! Noramlly have good results with antibiotics, but the congestions, headache and debilitating cough remain? Am I impatient? Should we add anything to the RX cocktail? Job interview on Friday, I'm a mess! :( Thanks

Hi Dear,

welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have nasal ear infection which leads to fluid accumulation behind the ear drum leads to reduced hearing tendency. I would suggest you to consult an Otolaryngologist and get evaluated. You should go for otoscopy examination as well to find out cause and exact extent of infection. Treatment can be planned accordingly. You need not get impatient. You should take antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs combination. For infection in ear antibiotic ear drops and decongestant nasal sprays can help. Draining of pus can also be done by physician. Maintain cleanliness of area.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
