Severe Ear Infections - Worries - Any thoughts?
So I'm a 19 year old kid in college.. and to give a rough summary..
I got a bad cough for a good week. It stopped, I went home, got these ear infections and got sick. This was a weekend before coming home. I didn't get any medacine for about 3 days. Then I got a general omaxycillin that didn't do anything for me.
I went to a nurse practitioner, because my mom works at a medical office. She said my ears were very red inside and they were very bad infections. I feel a little pressure, both of my ears feel clogged. I was prescribed a stronger version of omaxycillin and an allergy pill to help clear my system. The nurse said if it goes on too long I can get hearing loss.. and I'm not going to lie I'm extremely nervous about that. I've only been on the new medacine for 2 days, but have had the infections for almost 2 weeks. Is it still early enough where this should all still go away? It's driving me insane with worry.
Anyone with any information is greatly thanked.
