Ho.This may be due to acute infection in the nose - Rhinitis and Sinusitis with Otitis Media.
He needs to be changed to another antibiotic , get the relevant tests of blood done. Add on anti-inflammatory Medicines and antihistamine and a painkiller . This may take a few days to few weeks before the problem is completely resolved.

Hello. I have an ear infection that has been very painful for about a week. I feel that the nerves are inflamed. I can feel the pain in my teeth and down my neck. The Steroids (Prednisone) has helped somewhat but it still has a very painful feel to it. I am also on Omnicef for the infection. I am using a heating pad but I really need this to be gone. Help me please.

I ve had an ear infection/ache for about 1 week now. The pain is excruciating but I wanted to save money. Blood has started to leak out of my ear now, not much, just a slow steady flow. The pain it seems is getting worse and now I get cold chills and vertigo.
