Hearing loss getting worse in 4yrs

Hi
My daughter was born with a sensorial mild to moderate hearing loss and she started wearing hearing aids around the age of 9 months.
I used to take her for evaluation every 3 months and we noticed when she was about 2.5 years that it started getting worser, now she is a moderate to severe and can't do without the aids
Since there was no family history of such problem and the doctors couldn't explain the reason for her being born with it,we do not know how it'll progress and if she will eventually go deaf.
Her doctor is hopeful that this progressive loss is due to her ears growing and so, the loss of energy in the canal (as she explained) and that we have to keep monitoring her every 4 months now until she turns 5 and her ears stop growing.
As you can imagine I do not want to just wait and see, so please tell me if there is anything I can do improve her hearing or at least stabiles it.
Thank you

Q-4: Need much more details, your present answer is not enough.

Q-27: Is she usually cold or warm.

Does she like indoors or outdoors.

Give details of eczema where, how does it look, any itching, any pus etc. How do you control it.

How were adenoids cured.

Q-39: Need a close up picture of her hand nails.

I can't prescribe without these details.

4. She likes to draw and read but when she has decided something is hard te get her to change her mind even under threat of being ground
A lot of time she sings outloud or just scream any sound expressing her happiness, but at the same time she gives hugs and kisses and say I love you and thank you for the tiniest thing and love to dress like a girl mostly light colors and have her hair looking good all the time and even likes nailpolish
27. Doesn't really show a preference she will complain if it's too hot or too cold but at night a lot o times she removes her covers
She likes playing outside of course but with company outherwise she gets borred and she askes also to go home so she can draw or get me to read her stories
The first winters the eczema was only a 1 spot no larger than a nickle on her leggs a nd butt
This year though she had had few spots on her hand and wrist and even a couple small on her face and a couple on her leg
It usually is a group of small pimples of a light pink color, no pus and the spots on her legs itch but not too much
I use an all natural royal jelly body butter, it really helps,if I'm consistent (at least twice a day) all is gone in a week at most
For her adenoids, The homeopathy treatment didn't really help and I didn'nt want to go with the adenoidectomie so I used a traditional phyto therapy treatment organic dried figs in olive oil and after letting it sit for at least 3weeks I gave her about 1 tsp first thing in the morning

And before she sleeps since last summer to about a month ago,she didn't get any infections this year and no major sickness,
I forgot to mention that for the constipation I've given her half a dose of miralax almost daily for at least 4 months now

As I said she didn't have any problems this year so I didn't take her to the ENT since they last suggested the adenoidectomy, and she's not snoring and during her last visits for the hearing reevaluation there was no fluids in her ears.
As fer the eczema she only has it in the cold season,and when it gets warm and humid all the spots are gone
 
SarDah 5 years ago
How was your pregnancy, give details of entire pregnancy

Was it planned

How is your relationship with your husband

How was your daughter's hearing loss identified
 
fitness 5 years ago
As I said she didn't have any problems this year and we didn't have any follow ups with her ENT since they last suggested the adenoidectomy and so I can't tell for sure.
I didn't see the need to it as she is not snoring, no infections and each time that she had the hearing reevaluation she didn't have any fluids in her ears
As for the eczema, she has it during the cold season and with the heat and humidity it's all gone,if I notice anything in the future I'll be uploading a photo
I'd appreciate it if you tell me please the need for all these details for improving her hearing.
 
SarDah 5 years ago
Sorry for repeating as I didn't see the 2nd page
I still appreciate you explaining the need for the details
The pregnancy wasn't planned
I got pregnant less than 2months after we got married
I remember one thing although it's irrelevant, we where doing some home renovation and I told my husband this baby is gonna be deaf from all the hammering noise.
The morning sickness lasted a few weeks into the 2 trimester during which I had some really bad heart burn that made my chest and my right arm hurt, and also I had itching all over the body specially arms and legs for which I was given some medicine ( do not remember the name) that although it had worked in less than a week it made me so depressed I had to stop it
The total weight gain was exactly 30 lb. and I lost all of it a week after delivery at most
And since the baby was big I had a planned c-section and she was born 9 lb. 13 oz
The hearing loss was suspected at the hospital at birth when she didn't pass the hearing screening test and later confirmed with more testing
As for my relationship with my husband we make a good team and I'm very happy in my marriage .
 
SarDah 5 years ago
How did you feel on finding out about the pregnancy.

Was it a wanted baby.

Explain the depression after taking that medicine.

Why was the baby big, are you diabetic or are you and your husband big or anything else.
 
fitness 5 years ago
At first when I saw the positive test I cried because I wanted to finish my studies first and I didn't want to have my kids put into daycares, so that meant delaying all of my projects but few hours after I reasonning I was actually ok and happy with it, and I really anticipated it especially a baby girl.
About the depression, I was really sad and cried a lot and nothing could cheer me up with no reason so I read the side effects on the pills I and there it was so I stopped it
I am pretty tall,always have been above average and we did some tests on my daughter and her hormones are ok, so they concluded she just takes after me.
My husband isn't exeptionnaly tall for a man though
