The last couple weeks have been a doozy with my boys' health. They're usually pretty healthy but Fritz has had this lasting cough for a few months and seemed like he often had a runny nose. It wasn't until that turned into a full-fledged crying, screaming, no-sleeping fest that I decided to take him to the doctor where he told me that my sweet baby had a horrible ear infection. I gave him an antibiotic for that and after that was finished, I took him in for a diaper rash turned fungal infection and he had another ear infection! That's two ear infections, a fungal infection and I'm pretty sure he has a milk intolerance (which contributed to the cough and runny nose). I've since stopped giving him all dairy to see if that helps.
In conclusion, it appears my boys have horrible allergies. Allergies that give them runny noses, which lead to post-nasal drip, which leads to ear infections cause it has nowhere to go. I am lucky that I don't suffer from seasonal allergies but I wish that my boys didn't have to suffer through this, especially since you can't give small children allergy medication. Does anyone have any advice?
P.S. Sorry for the lengthy health log but I wanted to record it. Sounds weird but you'd be surprised at how often I go back through my blog looking for stats and other health information on my kids. Does anyone else do that?
