Fecking ear infection!

15 days and he STILL is in pain.

If anyone has clues* on how to fix this please fill in the virtual postcard below.

* And by clues I mean something other than advice I received from the local clinical herbalist. I really didn't fancy trying to put a piece of garlic in the exceedingly sore ear of a hugely reticent 9 yo!


  1. 15 days is way too long to be in pain. Doctors and don't take no for an answer. Pound on the desk if you need to - anything to get help.

    The mind boggles at how a piece of garlic in an already sore ear is going to help.

    Thinking of you both.

  2. Oh poor D'Boy :(

    I have no clues. Minx used to get ear infections but they never lasted this long.

    Sending him very soft and gentle hugs xxx

  3. until it resolves, you might consider numbing ear drops. they're prescription here in Colorado, but they can buy 4 hours of relief, which means sleep, which means better coping skills. Good luck and hugs to the poor kid.

  4. Poor kid! Back to a proper doctor, I would say, 15 days is way to long to be suffering!

  5. and now? How is he??? What a nightmare! I hope he well on the way with new drugs!
