Hi and welcome to the hearing loss forum!

You should continue to give your baby the drops. Stopping early could make the infection worse.

Did the doctor look in the baby's ear? If so, a perforation would have been obvious. Sorry to get gross and graphic, but the fluid/pus would have been leaking out into the ear canal. Any decent doctor would notice that.

I hope that helps you feel better about it. Glad your baby is doing better! Take care.
