I'm out of town right now and I'm wondering if my 25m old has an ear infection. He's had no fever but been very fussy. He's had thick nasal discharge and I can tell he's congested by the way he's breathing. This has been going on for 2 days. Just a little bit ago, after his bath, there was a big piece of kinda hard ear wax that came out.
Do you think I should take him to a doctor? I'm hesitant only because I'm in an area not familiar but maybe I should take him in to an immediate care around here.
Also- have you ever used any homeopathic medicines for ear infections? I've heard about giving them Pulsatilla but don't know much about it. Natural treatment for them?
Thanks for any suggestions, I appreciate it.
