Q.

Flu

Good Day Doctor

My one year daughter has been struggling with the flu and ear infection. She has been to the GP twice and Paeditrician once in the past month.
She has been on Bio-amoxil, then Zinnat and broncho-ped as she had a persistant cough and recently our GP put her on clementin, linto-pect , allergex, ponston as both her flu and ear infection returned.
What can we do as she is struggling to get rid of the flu .

Many Thanks

I am not sure from your report what the main symptoms are that youre concerned about with your daughter. Is the main complaint her ear infection? If this is the case she should see an ENT surgeon now as she has not responded to 3 lots of antibiotics and several other medicines. If she has a persistent cough she may have a tracheitis [see my reply to a similar question today]
