ear pain, no fever

    
Asked by charli (Female; 5; multiple illnesses this winter including pneumonia, ear infections (no pain but high fevers), croup and strep ) on Tue 14, Apr 2009 06:57pm

My 5 year old daughter is complaining of ear pain but has no fever. I give her Motrin 2x/day and as long as she's on it, she has great energy, eats pretty well, is happy and normal. This has been going on for 3 days and I'm wondering at what point do I need to see a doctor. I'm told that it might not be treated with antibiotics anyway, so how long do you wait to see if this resolves? I don't want to endanger her in any way, but don't want to pay the $200 office visit fee out of pocket just to hear that we should wait and see how it goes. Any advice you have would be great.

Hi, You must never wait in case of ear infection because it may not only cause deafness if left untreated but there are chances of the infection extending upto the brain in some cases . Please consult an ENT surgeon immediately for the examination , diagnosis and treatment . Antibiotics and antifungal medications can only treat the infections. .Please do not listen to others and consult the ENT surgeon .Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
