EI diagnosed Wed, still complaining of ear pain Fri?

Do we go back to the dr? (Well convenient care)??

DS was diagnosed with an ear infection on one side on Wednesday he had no outward symptoms (fever, drainage) just LOTS of pain. Later that day it started draining sticky, stinky liquid. So they called in some drops.

We started the drops and oral antibiotics and he's still complaining that it hurts. There is also quite a bit of off colored drainage that smells. The drops are clear.

Do we go back to the dr or give the antibiotics another couple of days?

I would give it over the weekend unless the pain gets worse. For me, it takes around a week to feel better with an ear infection. Be careful to change his pillowcase everynight in case he is grinding his ear back into what's draining overnight.

I would give him Motrin for the pain and wait until Monday. Did he see the ENT? I would go there if not.

They gave drops with ear discharge? My ped never does that. She says to stop drops of there is discharge like that, as there could be a tear in the eardrum... I agree with Motrin for pain!
