We ended up seeing the ENT anyways just to get his hearing checked which came back 100% so no hearing loss from the infection. GL mama and I would truly recommend getting your ds adjusted to make sure the infection stays away.
I've thought about this but I don't know if insurance covers chiropractor. I might have to find out. Thanks for the idea.

Ours did and my hubby was a bartender for olive garden so def check into it. We just had to pay a deductible for each of us. Also an office visit for most chiro's is pretty cheap. DH was laid off so when go in it is only 35.00.. If anything maybe just go in a visit with a chiro and tell them what is going on. It is usually free for a consult they may be willing to work with you(ours does)!!

I think I might do that. Plus ds has title 19 on top of regular insurance. I might call tomorrow to see what they say. I'm just worried he wouldn't do good at them (my ds not the doc haha). He's really clingy to me.

Your doc prescribed the higher dose amoxicillin to treat a more resistant infection. Doctors have treatment algorithms they follow when prescribing medications. Zithromax would be a good option if ds gets another infection.

Also, some docs have found that ear infections go away when dairy is removed from the diet.
