hello, as I was asking, does she have any ear ache?
what she is having is ASOM, or acute ear infection
this is a ear infection which is quite severe
the lump in the neck is due to enlarged lymph node
it has occurred due to the infection
and the ear color was strange like pink
thats right - thats because it is blood stained
this is common in ear infections
it is good that she is receiving antibiotics - this will help to cure her
what about the blood on the pillow?
thats from the ear infection also
ASOM or acute ear infections will cause bleeding from the ear
that is why there was blood on the pillow and the discharge is pinkish
she needs other supportive medicines like ear drops and antihistaminics
but when we was to see GP they told us is nothing wrong with the ear
I dont agree
what shell I do?
since she is having discharge from the ear which is pinkish, and there was blood on the pillow, and ear ache, this is definitely a ear infection
i would advise you to see an ENT specialist
they are specialists in the ear
an ENT specialist will be able to treat her appropriately
the frequent flu, runny nose, etc will also be treated by an ENT specialist
ask your doctor for a referral to an ENT specialist
GP told us to wait 72 hrs
ok that is all right
in 72 hours the infection will subside since she is on antibiotics
but at the same time you should arrange to see an ENT specialist
this is to prevent any long term problem
I will be offline now for about 10 minutes, please hold on and remain on the line and I will be back with you
she very often get ill
how to arrange to see ENT specialist?
She is often sick with the flu often starts coughing all the time we to see the doctor we get the same antibiotic time after time, did not treat the other way.
how to strengthen immunity to influenza?
after antibiotic she get weak and by the time she ok again get ill, bad sleep at night time, many times waking up crying.
hello I am back with you
you must ask your own doctor for a referral to an ENT
and the only answer from GP give antibiotic
your doctor can guide you to the appropriate ENT specialist
I understand - ask him for a referral to an ENT
in the UK you will need a referral from the GP
I am sure your doctor will give you this referral
ask that you want to see an ENT specialist
this will solve her problems
