My 14 month old daughter has been suffering with an ear infection for the last month and half now. She has been on three different antibiotics, Amoxcillin, Augmentin, and Bactrim. None of which worked. She has also received three Rocephin shots after the rounds of antibiotcs and her ear is still infected. Tubes were reccommended but she cannot be seen until 12/16. Can somebody tell me is this too long to wait for tubes to be placed? I am worried about her hearing being affected.
Dan Brennan, MD responded:
A chronic ear infection can have several outcomes. It can persist, it can sometimes resolve on its own, it can build up pressure and eventually rupture through the ear drum or it can spread to surroundind bone.

I would probably see if there is another ENT available to see your daughter sooner. Often times a pediatrician can pick up the phone and get their patient in to see a specialist very quickly if they speak to the specialist directly.

Keep advocating for your daughter until she gets the care she needs.
