    Default Antibiotics - how much is too much

    Long story short we've had a bad daycare start and DD picked up heaps. She's also had bad ear infections, more than likely caused by swimming lessons.
    She's already been on 3 courses since September and just been prescripted her 4th to deal with cough and ears.
    Previous doses haven't touched ears I'm now reluctant to fill script

    If they're not working I'd ask to be referred to an ENT.

    My daughter had recurring tonsillitis and on the third diagnosis my GP said something else might be going on so best to have a specialist look.

    I wouldnt be giving her yet another dose if the previous ones didnt actually do anything.
