excuse me .. my child has had a fever last week yesterday I went to the pediatrician and tht turned out to be an ear infection. the eardrum is swollen because there is a precipitated IV. finally I was given several drugs … including antibiotics. it turns out that when my child drinks anyltibiotics, they are bumps because they are allergic. My question is, I have to stop my child from taking antibiotics. Then, what kind of medicine can be substituted for my child’s ears? because other drugs given by doctors are cold and cold medicines only

Hello Faisal,


Thank you for the question.


Middle ear infection or otitis media is an infection of the middle ear including the eardrum caused by bacteria. This infection usually appears related to the presence of cough / cold that has been previously suffered, trauma due to manipulation / habit of prying the ears, or foreign objects that enter the ear.


If you visit an ENT specialist, usually the treatment given can be in the form of antibiotics, decongestants, and fever relievers. For allergic conditions in your child, it is necessary to explain what type of antibiotic that causes allergies, as well as a history of allergies to other drugs, so that the doctor can provide an alternative medicine for you.


For middle ear infections, doctors usually prescribe penicillin class antibiotics, so that if allergic, there are alternatives to other class of antibiotics, such as cephalosporin, macrolide, or quinolone. Of course you should consult your ENT specialist to replace the antibiotic, because the drug is not haphazardly bought freely. In addition, the doctor will also provide drugs to treat allergies in your child.


Here are other suggestions you can take to help treat your middle ear infection:

Continue treatment of cold medicine and cold medicine.
Warm water compresses for children if they have a fever.
Rest the child.
Drink 2-3 liters of water per day. In addition, enough for other nutritional needs.
Don't swim for a while.
Do not manipulate the ear, such as prying, blowing air into the ear, and putting water in the ear.

Hope this helps :)
