Sorry have to shout because

(a) this is all doing my head in
(b) I am deaf in my right ear because some bugger of an insect got in there and bit/stung me and my ear canal is swollen shut and seriously painful.

Can you take an antihistamine to help bring the swelling down?

ComeOVeneer Tue 11-Sep-07 22:03:36

And if you want to feel really squeamish it really feels like something is still in there (prob paranoid, like an itchy had when someone mentions nits) grin

I luckily caught the doctor before she left and she checked it out and prescribed some eardrops with a steriod/antibiotic and ntihistamine plus I have painkillers, chocolate, and now red wine, so may become obnoxious. grin.

COV, are you a dentist, by the way?

IGB Tue 11-Sep-07 22:07:19

Yes I am (a dentist that is).

filthymindedbolshevixen Tue 11-Sep-07 22:10:10

oh CoV - that sounds hellish

TolpuddlapinMartyr Tue 11-Sep-07 22:11:51

Can I be completely awful and ask you a question as a dentist? I've got this crown.... nah, just kidding grin.

No, my real question - at what age would you recommend taking a child for the first visit to a dentist? DS is 17m with 12 teeth (and possibly one or two more coming in!) I'm not sure if I should be taking him for a check up.

Thanks, sorry for being cheeky!

Hey Mrsjohn, try calmly telling your children (almost 3 and 6) that we are heading out the door at 6pm to the doctors because mummy may have a bug crawling aound in her ear possibly trying to bury into her brain (I am an arachnophobe btw and not great with wasps/bees etc etc). I am beginning to feel he wine kicking in now.

ComeOVeneer Tue 11-Sep-07 22:13:34

Tol I recommend starting at 2 so get him booked in with you for your next check up.
