What is wrong now? Need to vent, and if you have some helpful advice I'll take it.
My little girl, who is 20 months has had three bouts of bronchitis this year. Two of those times she also had infections in both of her ears.
The last bout was just over 3 weeks ago. I took her to the walk in and they gave her 10 days of antibiotics. After 7 days she still didn't seem to be feeling much better and was running a fever on and off. I took her back and was given a stronger antibiotic that was to be given to her for 5 days. That round ended a week ago.
This afternoon when I put her down for her nap, I noticed she felt a bit warm, but figured it was just from playing outside. She didn't sleep long, and started crying only 1/2 hour after I put her down. I went to get her and she was burning up. I gave her some Tylenol, but she is still miserable. I'm thinking it's another ear infection, as she has no other symptoms other than having a fever and being a cranky bear.
I guess I'll wait until tomorrow to take her to the walk in (it isn't actually a walk in, you have to call in the morning and take the first available appointment).
In the meantime what else can I do to make her feel better? Any tips on how to treat ear infections at home?
