DD is poorly again spent the night at the hospital - as she had blood comming out her ear -

She has a whole in her ear drum and a nasty infection.

When is mother nature gonna give us a break.

Aw FD, poor little mite. I hope she recovers from all this really soon.

Fairydust, really sorry to hear about your dd. If it helps at all mine had a perforated eardrum a week ago, without any warning (other than a heavy cold which had been previously seen by a GP and not thought serious at that point).
After just a dew days on amoxicillin she was completely back to normal. The GP said that although it's not a good thing for this to happen repeatedly, a hole in your eardrum is nature's way of letting infection out of your body and it won't cause any lasting problems.
Hope she is feeling better soon.

Just echoing what Marina says.....also, I've read that it takes only about a week for it to seal up again.

Very sorry for your dd - ear infections are excrutiating. I was at my wits end when dd had one last month.
