Today we took Wee Man to the ENT (Ears Nose Throat) Specialist to see if we can figure out what is going on with him. Ever since we moved to this state three years ago, Wee Man has had reoccurring ear infections every two-three months... Almost all have been bilateral, always quick onset and very painful...
Diagnosis is...... No clue....
"Well, his nose is beautiful.... no really his nose looks great." Dr. E explained after looking up Wee Man's nose.
"Hmmm" *smile* "Thanks..?.." I reply
"Looks like his Eustachian Tubes have a tendency to pull in more than normal, or suck like a vacuum" *holding up chart*
To which I just nod and stare clueless at Dr. E. He then went on to explain that most likely it's not allergies but rather the common cold that is causing all of Wee Man's ear infections... Since we are PCSing to a new base in June we decided to just see if that helps. (ie.. hope a different climate helps)
SO.... His Eustachian Tubes are unable to effectively regulate air pressure thus causing ear infections when he comes in contact with
Anyone else have a child with ear issues?
