My two year old got bit by an ant Sunday at my MIL's. His leg was very swollen, it was red and hot, he had a low fever, was very tired, and his voice was horse or raspy. We thought it was an allergic reaction, but he didn't have a problem breathing so we waited until we got home and took him to his doc. 2day. We had to see another doc. and she walked in the room telling me that an insect bite wouldn't cause him to be tired. She said his leg wasn't swollen. I said I know it was yesterday. We were worried that if one bite would do that what would happen if he got bit by more? She looked at his ears, said he had two ear infections, and said she sent the prescription to the pharmacy and left. His ears aren't red, he has no fever, and says his ears don't hurt. SHE PRESCRIBED A MED. HE IS ALLERGIC TO!! Would you take your child back tomorrow to see if his doc. thinks it an ear infection and tell about the med.??Answer Question
