Customer Question

I have history ENT problems including 2 x mastoidectomies in right ear. For past 8 eight months I have had continuous so-called "low-grade" infection ear/mastoid bone. Antibiotics do work, but the infections returns a few days after each course. Pain is now inside ear, around ear and up into head causing headache. Anything else I can do?
