DID YOU KNOW…… that the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommend waiting before prescribing antibiotics for children with ear infections???
Consider the following before giving your child antibiotics:
- Ask for a culture test to see exactly with bacteria is affecting your child
- Wait and watch for 72 hours before taking any antibiotics
- Overly prescribed antibiotics increases the dangers of antibiotic resistant bacteria
- Determine whether or not the child is simply teething; since the inflammation this causes is frequently misdiagnosed as an ear infection
