God I hope not again :-(...edit... Updated after dr app

We just got done with a month long ear infection with my 1 year old that took 2 different antibiotics to deal with and right after that he started teething 6 teeth. Well it's now 2 weeks after that calmed down and I am hoping he doesn't have another ear infection, I was up every hour with him crying in his sleep having to pull him back to his pillow and he was running over 102 fever and around 430 all he wanted to do was cuddle with me and wouldn't sleep after that unless I rocked him. Today no fever but he is VERY cranky. God I hope it's not another ear infection :-(, poor thing can't catch a break.



Update... Well the no fever didn't last to long, it's back up over 102. No other symptoms besides him being really cranky. I'm now in debat on calling the dr cause I would really hate for it to be an ear infection again.

UPDATE2---well no ear infection, the dr says she thinks it's a virus and if he is still running a temp Saturday then bring him back. Hopefully she is right and he is better by then cause we have plans saterday for a late vday thing with a babysitter. Weird thing she did day is stop rotating the ibprofin and tylonal cause she thinks it's to hard on them and not recommended anymore (never heard that before and his actual dr recommends it to us still, dr he saw was the one I don't fully trust yet) any one else's dr tell them this?

Take him to a chiropractor. They can cure and prevent ear infections without drugs.
I hope he feels better. None of my kids have ever had one, but I hear they are no fun :(

yeah, some doctors still recommend the ibp/tylenol rotation, but it is hard on their renal system. OTC Cold medicines are even worse! We try not to use them unless absolutely necessary.

I'd only do the rotation if the fever is still high when it would be time for the other med. Like 103ish high. At least 102.
