Ear Infection After Ear Infection - Infant

My 9 months old baby boy has been batteling ear infection after infection since Christmas when he got his first cold in daycare. Since then he has one infection after another and unless he is on antibiotics he has symptoms. He wakes up screaming but semms ok but cranky during the day. While on an antibiotic he feels better and sleeps through the night without fail. He had tubes put into his ears in March but the prblem seems worse than ever. Both ears are constantly draining (his right one more than the other). I have started giving him eccenechia without any improvement so far. Please help.

Thank you for your reply. my child had a bad cold right before christmas (green mucous from the nose) that turned into an ear infection. the first ear infection was treated with amoxicillon oral antibiotic. the only thing i have noticed about his skin are one or two small (dime size) dry patches on his upper arms and a similar patch on his cheek. this typically goes away when i apply baby lotion and started in the cold months. my child has had the typical immunizations for a child his age (i cannot remember the dates right now but can check. (he just had his polio and hepatitis shot on monday). my ent suggested a week and a half ago that we stop all cow milk products. he gets soy formula, baby cereals, fruits and vegetables (baby food jars), fruit juice.

John Stanton last decade
26 dec - cold/ear infection - given amoxicillon antibiotic

middel of jan - cold/ ear infection - omnicef antibiotic

2feb - cold/ear infection - augmentin

mid feb cold/ear infection - three shots (one per day for three days) - i think it was zi...something antibiotic

end of feb- seen by ENT -still ear infection

7 mar - ear tubes - floxin antibiotic drops

23 mar - cold/ear infection - tubes clogged, some other antibiotic drops and oral antibiotic

april - two more ear infections - omnicef and augmentin ES600 antibiotic

may - cashpowder (dry-powder 'sprayed' into ear) - contained steroid, antibiotic, antifungal

culture of ear showed nothing (ENT mentioned it is compromised by all the meds he's been on)

present - just took zithromax (or something like that) for 5 days - felt good for the first time in 4 weeks and slept through the night!!!! the entire course the ears were draining. as soon as anitiotic stopped he started waking at night again (next night) and is cranky during the day, ears not draining anymore

9may - seen by ENT - new tubes of different material to be placed into both ears end of the month (he said he had one case like this in ten years were it seemed child was allergic to the tubes themselves - they contain some silver? they are antibiotic material...)

thank you for your quick replies.

no illnesses before dec 26/2005? please explain

when exactly (check records) vaccinations/immunizations given?

John Stanton last decade
I will check the immunization schedule when i get home. he had no illnesses prior to december at which poijnt he had been in daycare for 4 weeks. he was breastfed exclusively until feb 2006 (stopped when he was 6 months old)
zanesmom last decade
one more thing - he has had stridor and stertor which got worse when excited or feeding. the high pitched sounds he made have been gone since he was about 4 months old, he still makes the raspy sounds and snores. this was evaluated during ear surgery and all looks fine - immature vocal cords and throat muscles...
zanesmom last decade
what was done about the stridor?take to docs look?please expaln

what were exact symptoms concerning stridor?
John Stanton last decade
the docs took a look into his airway and say that his tissue was immature which caused the loud breathing. nothing else was done .
zanesmom last decade
how long exactly after this examination did first cold occur?

absolutely no illness of any sort was experienced by child (besides stridor and cold)? even if in just passing?

no skin conditions at all?not even cradle cap? or little spot here or there?when was ''dime sized spots first noticed exactly'?
John Stanton last decade
examination of throat occurred during ear tube surgery so that was in early march after several colds and ear infections had already happened

the only other illness he had was during an ear infection/cold in april when he spiked a fever of 104 for one night which stayed elevated (1020 for a couple of days after that) - we went to doctor - they did blood count and suggested it was a viral infection - nothing was done and it resolved

the dry spots started during the cold months so in nov/dec

no, he had no cradle cap or anything like that at 6 weeks he had baby acne on his face for about 4 weeks

no other illnesses
thanks again

how much antibiotic use in mother's health hitory?please explain

what dis-eases and such in family genetic history?please explain
John Stanton last decade
was given amoxicillan in 2001 (aug) for terrible ear infection myself (ear canal swelled shut, outer ear swollen and side of face also)that was after antibiotic drops and amoxicillan were perscribed. wick had to be inserted and additional antibiotic drops and steroid given - cleared up within 2 days.

given antibiotic sometime in 1998 for horrible cough that had lasted for weeks. other than that no antibiotics in adulthood.

had numerous ear infections as a child, ear drum had a hole in it from age 5-10 - then finally surgically repaired. not much antibiotic use at all during this time (from germany originally - antibiotics given very rarely for ear infections)

my mother had bad ear infections also (first one at 4 weeks of age) and so did her father's side of the family (so ear problems are typical)

other than that family reasonably healthy. child's father has had no health problems at all...

concerning headache during pregnancy---did mother have such before pregnancy?please explain..where exact location of headache?part(s) of head envolved?describe the characteristics?

mother been to chiropractic treatment?when?

please explain he exact symptoms envolved with 'bad cos' 3rd month of pregnancy...
John Stanton last decade
no headaches like that before pregnancy. mostly in first trimester. constant numb pain all over head - would try and ignore and go to bed and drink water but headaches still there when woke in the morning

currently pregnant again (14th week) and headaches occurred again but are subsiding now

frequency only about two to three times a week - tylenol helps

no chiropractic treatment but had bad shoulder/neck pains (aggrevated by repetetive motion at work) - right side - feels muscles get tighter and tighter and ball up in a big know - worse when shoulder used or tense/stressed - subsided during both preganacies but came back between them. saw physical therapist for it - (about one year before first pregnancy started) - given slectric stimulation and steroid patch for a while - temporarily relieved symptoms but nothing worked long time except using shoulder as little as possible

bad cold in 3rd month of pregancy : very fatigued, missed two days work, nasal congestions severe - constantly blowing nose - almost fluelike but no fever or as severe as cold
