otitis of middle ear

My son is 4+ yrs old. He complains of flu and cough during the months of Feb till june, as its spring time here in Kashmir, he is allergic to pollens etc. he complained of pain in his ears in may 2011, then was put on Lactoclav for 13 days by hz pediatrician. things went fine untill this February when we noted him making us repeat the words or increasing the volume of TV. We took him to ENT who suggested insertion of some tube, but we changed the doctor switshed to another ENT spt. He put him on Augmentin since feb. till may. although the medice was stopped in between by the doctor but need arised to give him again due to flu. Now he too haz advised me for the insertion of tube. pls advice.

Hi ,

You should seek a good ENT specialist in your area .Your son is just 4yrs old you should treat him well within time.
I know a good ENT ( surgeon ) here in Gurgaon . He is said to be best by many people , according to him most of the ENT problem we have is due to our nose .
