Prisha had started to complain of ear itch last 10 days.I would put in mullien ear drops and it would be fine the next morning. I have not been using the HA in the left ear still as the skin was still a bit sensitive.Then started the pain in the left ear.I peeped in and there her ear did look bad.I started to have sleepless nights and the fear in the mind played havoc. I spoke to my homeopath and he started her on special medication.Her ear started to have discharge and I needed to clean it 2 times a day which gave her relief. Her tragus [the little triangular ear piece that covers the ear canal] was swollen nearly 3 times and it was red.She was having immense pain and did not allow any touch.I started to panic yesterday when she said she had problem eating, opening her mouth and the pain extended to behind the ear, in front and the lobe. The canal on close examination did show tiny eruptions some with white fluid.I felt it was time to rush to an ENT specialist as she was crying in pain.My fear was for the ear drum. We both had a sleepless night as we had to take the appointment. Meanwhile I was giving her calc sulp 200 ,homeopathic medicine as liquid medicine every 2 hours.Fortunately , it was helping her. Some of her little eruptions did burst. This morning , she got up and was having pain still. I gave her painkiller.This evening we went to the specialist with my heart pounding against my chest.After examination, he found there was lots of fluid wax, which he started to clean. At home the entire roof is down when I check her ear.Here she sat like a little scared lamb. Fortunately her ear drum was intact but there was lots of inflammation of the eardrum and the ear canal was infected too. There was some fungus. She is down with skin infection again and was diagnosed with external otitis.Some anti biotics for three days and eardrops along with pain killers should see her through this.i have written to my homeopath. Hopefully he should see us through this tough patch too.I am hoping that this skin infection should be out soon.The pain is unbearable but I am proud of my lil girl who is bearing it and is wiping away my tears before hers when she cries in pain.Her reward for being such a great patient at the doc were her favorite things- a drawing book and some nice butterfly clips for her hair.On return she did not forget to thank her caretaker GOD- Hanumanji , for easing her pain.She did make the drawing too as thanks giving.
