Otitis Media over and over again
Hi Helen

Oskar suffers again from inflammation of the middle ear (otitis media) and is treated with penicillin for the third time since the 4th of August 2008. He does not seem to be in excessive pain, as he is not screaming or anything, but he does not eat, takes his hand to the ear, he looks blear-eyed, is running a fever and seems restless when he is asleep.

Yesterday, the ENT specialist told me that there is nothing wrong with Oskar's ears, despite the fact that our GP and several ER doctors have informed that the ears are red and inflammed. Today we had a zone therapist's appointment, on Monday a GP's appointment.

Oskar is eight months old. Lengteh 76 cm, weight 8.7 kg (date of birth the 10th of March 2008).

Best regards
Oskar's mother
