Glue ear/ear infection/conjunctivitis/sinus question.

Post by Sash on Mon 11 Nov 2013 - 9:43

Hi there!

Just a quick question. When/how do you know if your child needs grommets? Obviously, when the doctor tells you, but I'm not sure if I should take E to the doc or just wait for it to clear up. It's happened a few times over the last few months and usually clears up without medication, but I'm a bit concerned as it keeps coming back and she always get and eye infection and a very snotty nose at the same time and since we are immigrating soon I don't want to neglect it and then end up paying cash in NZ for something our medical aid will cover here.....I think I just answered my own question....
Anyhoooo, for those that's gone through this before, what do you think?

We got grommets after 3 ear infections that had to be treated with antibiotics. this year he said if the ears remained inflamed longer than 3 weeks he wouldconsider it. but Kians ears cleared up.

if the infections resolve themselves I woud not worry too much but you can always go see an ENT for a real opinion.
