yes some ear infections clear on their own. I suppose that would be the ones that are viral in nature. quite a few peds are holding off a few days on giving anti-bs on ear infections as some seem to clear.
do you even have an ear infection? or does your ear just hurt? ears hurt when they are congested. doesn't mean they are necessarily infected. AND I know you say your throat is infected and you've gone through two rounds of anti-bs. BUT are you sure they are still infected? I mean you were sure your teeth were infected too, and they weren't.
I had ear infections constantly as a kid. One of my kids, when she was little, would get pneumonia and ear infections pretty darned often. all of my other kids had ear infections too. Docs always just gave anti-bs.
and bev, honestly and for true, you have some kind of oddball fixation on brain infections. WHY do you always go there? Listen I've never had a brain infection from ear issues. my right ear, btw, is continually plugged up. my left ear drum, almost 3yrs ago, burst from an ear infection. It hurt like a SOB!! but no brain infection..... None of my kids have EVER developed a brain infection either. In fact I"ve never known a single person who has had a brain infection due to ear infections or throat infections....
bottom line: Has there ever been cases of brain infections due to ear infection? Hey I suppose it is possible. Many things are possible. BUT brain infection caused by ear infections ranks up there with all the other minute possiblities of cancer that you worried over yesterday.
Bev what are you going to do about your catastrophic thinking? You know you can't really live a happy life worrying about something new each and every day.
