It is unusual for a boy of 4 years to have such severe ear problems. The problem with his treatment started off once your son's ears had started to discharge the infected mucous. It should have been obvious that your son's eardrums had burst and he should have been referred to an ENT specialist immediately for examination and almost certainly he needed grommets. Your son must go back to the ENT as soon as possible so that he can have grommets inserted to drain the infected fluid behind his eardrums. Antibiotics will not help at this stage.
