My daughter is going on 22 months old. She has had recurring ear infections that the antibiotics don't seem to be helping much and I'm worried she's building up a resistance. She has her 2 year molars coming in which is causing congestion and the pediatrician told me that once you have an ear infection the fluid takes a couple months to go away and increases her chances even more of getting an ear infection .Topped with the winter and the increased chances of colds, he said it's practically inevitable that she's going to continue to have these infections through the winter. He said at this point we either need to put ear tubes in her or put her on antibiotics through the whole winter. I have heard a couple different stories about experiences with ear tubes. Some say it's great and others say it's dangerous and painful. I just want what's best for my little girl and I don't want her to suffer through the whole winter. What is your experience on this?
