hello

Dr. P. Jyoti :

hello, as I was asking, does she have any ear ache?

Customer:

yes

Dr. P. Jyoti :

what she is having is ASOM, or acute ear infection

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is a ear infection which is quite severe

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the lump in the neck is due to enlarged lymph node

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it has occurred due to the infection

Customer:

and the ear color was strange like pink

Dr. P. Jyoti :

thats right - thats because it is blood stained

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is common in ear infections

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it is good that she is receiving antibiotics - this will help to cure her

Customer:

what about the blood on the pillow?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

thats from the ear infection also

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ASOM or acute ear infections will cause bleeding from the ear

Dr. P. Jyoti :

that is why there was blood on the pillow and the discharge is pinkish

Dr. P. Jyoti :

she needs other supportive medicines like ear drops and antihistaminics

Customer:

but when we was to see GP they told us is nothing wrong with the ear

Dr. P. Jyoti :

I dont agree

Customer:

what shell I do?

Dr. P. Jyoti :

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

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i would advise you to see an ENT specialist

Dr. P. Jyoti :

they are specialists in the ear

Dr. P. Jyoti :

an ENT specialist will be able to treat her appropriately

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the frequent flu, runny nose, etc will also be treated by an ENT specialist

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask your doctor for a referral to an ENT specialist

Customer:

GP told us to wait 72 hrs

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok that is all right

Dr. P. Jyoti :

in 72 hours the infection will subside since she is on antibiotics

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but at the same time you should arrange to see an ENT specialist

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is to prevent any long term problem

Customer:
