Otitis treatment in a child, preschoolers

If you have never experienced otitis, consider yourself lucky. Only now, having gone through this whole nightmare, I understood why some mummies protect my children’s ears so much, put hats on in any weather and even put cotton wool in the ear for prevention.

Two weeks ago, my idea of ​​otitis was quite extensive. Everything changed one day.

An ordinary weekday evening: dinner, a fairy tale, a dream. The only difference is that the daughter fell asleep for a long time, periodically placing my palm under her head. But I did not attach any importance to this. As it turned out, nothing. At two o’clock in the morning I was awakened by crying. Ulyasha cried in her sleep, but when I woke her up, my daughter could not explain the cause of tears. In the end, she fell asleep in my arms. As soon as I tried to put her in bed, I immediately woke up and began to sob.

The next morning I didn’t look the best, and my daughter had a fever. The doctor who came to the call did not clarify. Slapping the diagnosis of ARVI on the card and prescribing another cough syrup, the doctor withdrew. I didn’t have any suspicions that Ulya started otitis, because she complained of an earache … only in a day!

That’s when I sounded the alarm. And the first thing I did was call a neighbor, who, although she did not have a medical degree, was well versed in children’s diseases because of her experience.

A neighbor skillfully pressed her daughter’s ear, she immediately screamed hysterically. The verdict was clear: Otitis! The first thing to do was get to the ENT. As it turned out, it is not so easy, because the tickets were issued only at 7 in the morning, and when I called the clinic at 7.10, there was not a single ticket. But in the reference I was absolutely informed that if the child complains of pain, then I can pass without a queue.

The doctor confirmed the concerns and prescribed the treatment: endlessly flush the nose with saline solution, drip drops to constrict the blood vessels, and bury Otipax in the ear. And, of course, an antibiotic. Most importantly, the ear (in our case, the left) must be kept warm, in any case not to wet.

Seven days before the next visit to the doctor, we walked around the house in a kerchief. My daughter said she was Alyonushka from a fairy tale. She took the treatment stoically and even tried to wash her nose for herself. As a result, our ear went on the mend. But I wanted to prevent such a sore in the future, so I asked the doctor how to protect my child from otitis.

The answer was simple: Treat the snot! Of course, otitis may have other reasons. But in our case, the inflammation happened precisely because fluid accumulated in the middle ear and bacteria began to multiply. The most terrible thing in otitis is not pain, but consequences. Improper or delayed treatment of this childhood illness can lead to hearing loss!

After going through we keep our ears warm, and try not to run snot. And I sincerely hope that otitis in our life will not happen again!
