10 months old and burst ear drums for 4 months

DD is nearly 11 months and has had burst ear drums on and off for 4 months- antibiotics don't work, homeopathy doesn't really work (and consultations cost a fortune) a referral to ENT could take months......what to do? One ear clears up then the other goes. She's fine when it has burst- looks gross though with thick pus- sy stuff trickling out, and it can't be good for her. Any advice on what to do? Don't want to go down the grommet route either. Thanks

Have you thought about cranial osteopathy maisie? Worth looking into as they can help with the drainage of the fluid behind the ear.

Two of my three children had grommits (plus adenoids and tonsils out) - didn't know about the osteopathy then so didn't give it a go. My third grew out of her problems but not 'til she was about 5.

Is her hearing affected?
