Suggest treatment for ear infection

I took my 9 mo old for a well child visit and they said both ears were infected and bulging with white pussy fluid around the ear. They want to put him on antibiotic. I really don't like giving my child antibiotics. We have worked so hard to keep him off.

HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Its not the question of whether you like or dislike to give him antibiotics . If it is really an ear infection with Pus accumulation then yes he has to be put on Antibiotics else it may turn into some serious infection even spreading to face or Brain .

If at all you doubt the diagnosis done by that doctor take a second opinion and if the second doctor too opines the same kindly get him the antibiotics.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask .
