Thanks for posting your query at HealthCareMagic. I am sorry that your baby is not doing well. It would have been easier for me to comment had I known if your child is suffering from common cold. Often, an internal tube that connects our throat with our ear gets blocked during cough and cold and it could be a reason. You have also not indicated whether the doctor also looked at her left ear and/or cleaned the wax from it. She could he having wax in her left ear too.

Please get back with the details and I would be happy to help you further.
