Recurrent ear infections?

About two was ago ds2 was diagnosed w another ear infection.   His second in a month and prob his forth total.  Plus one sinus inf before too.   That's a lot of antibiotics. 

I know they say not all need to be treated but he gets the fluid too which is dangerous and he's cranky--mainly at night waking a zillion times.  We go for a follow up since he's been off of the augmentin for 5 days and I'd swear he has it still!!   I'm worried and not sure what the next step is.  Anyone have this?   I mean 3 antibiotics in about a month??

  • My younger DD had seven ear infections from 12 mos-16 mos.  They just never went away.  We opted to have tubes put in her ears and did so three days after our consult with the ENT.  The procedure was simple, and we've been so pleased with t
