Hello,

If water entry into ears in case of gromet insertion patients may lead to infection. So avoid water entry into the ears.

Use tablet amoxicillin and clavulinic acid 625mg twice a day for five days. Use tablet levocetrizine twice a day for five days.

Avoid cool drinks and ice creams. Use water vapour inhalation thrice a day for five days.

If symptoms not improved please consult with your ENT specialist he will examine and treat you accordingly.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu
