What causes high fever, vomiting, ear pain, blocked nose and throat pain?

On Wednesday, the doctor said my daughter has the flu and had fluid on her ears. It s now Friday and she is still running a high fever, throwing up, ear hurting, nasal passage blocked and can t blow her nose, won t drink or eat because she said it hurts her throat, and her lips are scaly and looked bruised. Should I be concerned?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi,

The most probable causes for her symptoms are the following:
* Painful swallowing indicates pharyngitis
* Fever indicates secondary bacterial infection
* Blocked nose is due to severe rhinitis
* The fluid and infection goes from nose to the middle ear through Eustachian tubes and thus the symptoms
* Hence she needs additional antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and decongestants as per the advise of her doctor
* Bed rest helps early recovery
* Plenty of fluids orally, a PPI like Omeprazole
* Liquid Povidone Iodine gargles
* Xylometazoline nasal drops
* Complete the courses till complete recovery

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
