I put in a call to our doctor today, because after 7 days on the medication, Tehilla is still pulling her ears and clawing at her head. The Otidin helps her. In fact, it's the only thing that helps her, and as soon as it wears off, she starts crying and pulling her ears again.
Our doctor sent us to an ENT to take a look at what is going on. Luckily, we were able to get an emergency appointment. The ENT took a look at her ears and throat and said there is no infection. When I asked him why she was in such misery, he just shrugged and said, "Maybe her ears hurt." Oh, thank you for clearing that up.
On the plus side, the Otidin drops are giving her relief and allowing her to nap and sleep for several hours at night. At least the infection itself, is definitely gone and with the added rest, her body will hopefully bounce itself back.
