Suggest treatment for ear infection

Hi, my son suffers from severe ear infections. He had tubes in his ears and they have removed them already. When swimming, he always wears ear plugs to protect him from the water. (He does not have swim ears). Yesterday we went swimming and he did not have his ear plugs. Today I noticed that when he puts a finger in his ear and shakes it, there is a whistling sound that comes from there. He's not in pain but he says it bothers him. What could it be??

Hello,

Try to avoid swimming without using an earplug. Better do diagnostic nasal endoscopy for looking nasal problems adenoid enlargement. If the nasal problem is present correct that first then ear problem will get reduced.



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