What to Do About Kids’ Ear Infections


Most parents are all too familiar with children
developing ear infections. But not all ear infections are the same. I’m Jennifer Dodd
and this is a dailyRx Feature. The trick is figuring out if the infection requires antibiotics
or if it’s better to wait it out. The American Academy of Pediatricians has issued new guidelines
for how doctors should treat children with middle ear infections. The guidelines state
that doctors may diagnose a middle ear infection if a child has mild bulging of the ear drum
and has had ear pain within the past 48 hours or has a severe rash on the ear drum. Talk
about treatment options with your child’s pediatrician. For DailyRx TV, I’m Jennifer
Dodd.
