Discharge From The Child’s Ear After Coughing And Flu For 1 Month?
Almost a month my child has a cough and flu. Indeed, I did not give medicine hoping to recover without medication. From last night his ears were watering. Possible infection due to nasal discharge draining into the ear. According to the doctor, what medicine is suitable for me to give my child who is 1 year old. R n r nWhat are cough and cold medicines or ear medications?
From the information you have conveyed, there are complaints of cough and flu that have been running for 1 month and complications of ear problems in the form of discharge from the ears, so you should consult directly with your pediatrician or ENT doctor.
A complaint that has been going on for one month is a long time, so it can be at risk of causing a child's weight to gain difficulty, disorders of the ears, sinuses, and causing heart and joint disorders.
If the child is sick and within 3 days the pain complaints do not get better, it is better if a direct examination to the doctor can be done immediately, thus, your child's health complaints can be handled immediately and prevent unexpected complications during your child's development.
In general, complaints of coughs and colds in children can be caused by viral infections, and get better in 3-5 days. However, if the next 3 days there is no improvement, examination and treatment by a doctor can be considered.
In addition, in sick children, for initial conditions, children who are mildly sick do not take drugs or use over-the-counter drugs for 2-3 days, which is still within reasonable limits, because it is hoped that the child's body can fight the infection they have received, but come back again, if after 3rd day no improvement, examination and treatment by a doctor can be considered.
Therefore, I cannot provide treatment without direct examination of the patient. So that the drug can only be given after the doctor has examined and determined the patient's condition and determined the cause.
That's the info we can convey, read also the discussion.
