Repeated middle ear infectionsMy 6 year old son has had year infections since he was 1 1/2 and
now (march 2005)he has been having left ear infected since December 2004. Fluid in his middle ear has not cleared. He has been on antibiotics all along. As long as he takes anitibiotics he feels better, the infection starts after about a week he stops taking antibiotics. He also takes Ferrom Phos 12X 2 pills twice daily(recommended by a friend). It is worse in the winter months.
But has not helped much.

Homeopathy heals the whole person, not a part of. Please describe the child. His responses.
Like: he could be screaming in pain or wimpering, or quiet and stoic. He could cough or sweat, sleep badly or sleep through it. When there is fever, does he curl up in covers or toss them off? You see, your child is an individual that acts in certain ways we need to know.
Report like you are showing his pics to a friend, and he is, and he does, and he likes. You see? This will be a long and daily thing to get him past this.

First day: sore throat, slight runny nose.
Second day: persistent cough (greenish yellow mucus in the morning gets whitish during the day),lots of runny nose with fever. He does not like to be curled in covers.
By the third day we usually go to the doctor and antibiotics are prescribed.
Scared of dark or play alone in a room. Thinks a monster will come out of the closet.
He has always been constipated.
He likes apples, grapes, carrots, chicken. He likes to play with his friends the most.
he dislikes eggs, most fried foods, sea food.

Surgical drainage of the middle ear is usually essential in severe or refractory otis media. Alert and watchful treatment is especially recommended in purulent otis media to prevent mastoiditis.
Chronic purulent otitis media is diffucult to treat because the germ is resistant to antibiotics and because the disease involve the bony margins of the middle ear. The pus in chronic otitis not complicated by cholesteatoma should be cultured to determined the type of offending microorganisim.
A foul-smelling discharge from the ear is a danger sign that warrents immediate medical investigation. It can also develop as a complication of scarlet fever, mumps, pneumonia, measles, flu, diphtheria, whooping cough, and tonsillitis.
