I was with a cold or flu last week. I was prescribed for

Hello, I was with a cold or flu last week. I was prescribed for extra protection with amoxicillin for 5 days. I followed the treatment and after 5 days I started with sore throat without fever for 2 days. I went to a walk in clinic and the doctor made a quick test on my throat, result negative. He suggested Azitromicine in case my symptoms worsened. I started feeling worst and started with the new anthibiotic. I am quite concerned since I have good health in general. I am out of my country of origin till tomorrow and I have a 12 hour flight to return. I want to know what should I do, fly or not to fly or what symptoms should I must be concerned to cancel the flight. Best regards Pedro

My 3 year old daughter had PE tubes placed just over a year

My 3 year old daughter had PE tubes placed just over a year ago for chronic otitis media. Tubes have been confirmed to be in place by her pediatrician at each appt since then. She had her 3 year well check about 6 weeks ago which also confirmed placement of both tubes which were patent. She has since started ISR swimming which lasted about 3 weeks. Towards the end of her lessons one day, I noticed a small piece of dried blood visible from the outside of her right ear. I cleaned the ear with a safety q-tip which came out with a dark, dried blood colored discharge. I started her on her antibiotic ear drops and scheduled an appt with her pediatrician. The pediatrician was not able to visualize the tube in the right ear due to dried blood in the ear. The left tube was visualized and clear. She recommended that we finish the course of antibiotic ear drops and follow up with ENT. The soonest appt we could get is a month away. I have a cheap drug store otoscope that I used to take a look today in both ears. I can see the blue PE tube clearly in the left ear, but in the right ear I still see a lot of dried blood and cannot see the tube. The pediatrician was hopeful that the drops would help to wash away some of the dried blood, but yesterday was the 7th day of drops and there is still a of of dried blood inside. Do you have any idea what could have caused this? Is there anything else I could be doing from home such as an ear wash until we can see ENT? I been extra careful about getting water in her right ear and have stopped using the safety q-tips in fear of dislodging a piece of dried blood and disrupting the tube if it hasn't been already. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response!
