Anyone's LO on Zyrtec for ear infections? LO just got her first ear infection - they thought her teething and environmental allergies produced so much snot and it backed into her ears. They gave me ear drop antibiotics along with Zyrtec to dry out the snot. The ear drops are so hard - they keep falling out of her ears the minute she sits up - any tips on that? I hold her sideways for 5 min each ear but they still fall out! The Zyrtec - they basically said to give that whenever she starts teething to help prevent another ear infection from starting. we can't do oral antibiotics due to her past history of c diff infection which is usually caused by taking antibiotics so we are stuck with ear drops for now.
