My 3 yr old has a bad ear infection. We are alternating Tylenol / Motrin every 3 hrs but he’s still miserable. He’s only had 1 dose of amoxicillin so far so that’s not helping yet either. Any home remedies for the pain?

I am sorry for his symptoms.
Antibiotic can take 48-72 hours to show its effect.
Warm compression can be soothing.
If he has nasal congestion, it can produce pressure inside ear.
Zyrtec can be given.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish him good health.
Regards.

He takes a daily singular already. are those two similar drugs ?

Sorry for delay.

I was offline.

No,they are different but both can help in allergy.

But as he is taking Singulair, he may not need it.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
