Q.

gp vs ent

hi doc-yesterday we had a follow up appointment with my son gp-he has been suffering with his ears for 2months and has been on antibiotics for longer.yesterday the gp suggested we have grommets put in so he referred us to an ENT.the ENT said no - and prescribed Deselex syrup and Nasonex nasal spray,which i am fine with.my q is should he have went for grommets or is the ENT trying a new approach to spare my 2yr &  9mnth old son the distress??

This is the ENT specialist's opinion.It is certainly not due to your son's age.Give the treatment a chance and see if your son improves.
