My 13 month old had a high fever 104.2 Thurseday night, we called the nurse (our regular Dr's awnsering service) and she said go to the ER. We went and found our son had a "mild" ear infection ... "take omnicef once a day and alternate tylenol and motrin every 3 hrs"
This morning his ear was clogged with solid wax, I romoved it and a few hours later there was more, but not as solid. When I removed that, a little later I noticed more, this time runny.
He's in a lot of pain, ear pulling and when he cries he puts his hand over his face like he's holding it. He's maintained a fever of 100-102 since we first went. He's also not sleeping unless its on top of me.
Ive had enough I don't think I can know hes in that much pain and not do anything all night. I'm thinking of asking for intravenous antibiotics tonight rather than wait for our regular Drs advice tomorrow. Ladies what do you think? What would you do?
