Q.

Earache

My 4 year old daughter had her tonsils removed as well as her adenoids and had grommets put in - suffered from Otitis Media. She still gets earache as well as a sore throat and her nose bleeds at times. What do I do? The op was done about 8 months ago.

Your daughter should obviously not still be having earache. The grommets may have fallen out and her ear problem [glue ear] may have returned. Please ask the ENT specialist who saw her before to see her again.

My son and I went swimming the week-end. We just love swimming. And we were diving around like dolphins which I don' t do ordinarly.

Now, I have incredible earache - aches tremendously! My jaw is affected, cannot take a bite to eat, aches!! And now the pain is going to my neck / shoulders.

Drinking pain killers - however when they wear off, pain is back.

Brown liquid coming out of my ear.
