Q.

Ear PRoblems

My daughter has had many ear troubles including grommets, burst ear drum and tympanoplast. She has been to her ENT twice these past few weeks but I am not happy with only giving her drops and hoping the problem will go away. I really feel I need to get a second opinion but would like to see a highly recommended ENT in Johannesburg. Is there one somebody out there can recomend me to. I am afraid this is going to affect her hearing.

I cannot advise, but often it is the best route to treat and observe first, before doing anything more aggressive.
