What does pink eye and a double ear infection look like?-PSF


Last week, we had the dreaded pink eye plague at our house. 

It started with #2.  When I took her to the doctor, we found out she also had a serious double ear infection.  I guess it makes sense that she was a little fussy.

Then this weekend, #1 got pink eye, too.  (Thanks daycare kid who has a dad that is a doctor who thought it was smart to write a note saying it’s okay that his kid could go to daycare because it “isn’t pink eye!”  Can I send you the bill for over $100 in prescription antibiotics and over $200 in doctor’s bills?)

Turns out, #2 then had a reaction (but not allergic) to the amoxicillin so we had to go back to the doctor.  And, she still had a horrible ear infection.   So, now she’s on a toxic dosage of antibiotic which is now causing frequent diaper changes, diaper rash, and outfit changes.

Isn’t daycare awesome?

  16. yuck!! i hope they are both better soon, that dad sucks;)

  17. Sparkette says:

    Ugh! Hope she is feeling better.

    Can't stand daycare. I thank God that the people that brought their kids with lice – my kids didn't get it. Why do they do that?!

  18. I so feel your pain. My first son went through those problems and then I found an in home sitter to watch him and now his baby brother. The kids are much healthier it seems like. Lots of luck!

  19. Ugh, that stinks. I always hate to see they "your child may have been exposed to…" signs on the door.

  20. Smart A$$ Mom says:

    I dunno….pink eye looks pretty cute to me!

  21. Aww poor thing, I just hate that. And He's a doctor??

    My boys always get the runs and a diaper rash from antibiotics also, yuck.

  22. Party foul on that doctor!! Boo.

    Hope you and your family get rid of all that pink eye. Did someone tell you to throw out all your eyeliners and mascara. Yep, it can re-infect you.

  23. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear. My daughter had a double ear infection last year, and it was awful!

    I hope everyone feels better soon.

  24. Oh dear oh dear. I was just there in the poo dept with mine having antibiotics for an ear infection – it's SOOOO nasty! Poor thing. But man – she's a HAPPY sick little girl! 🙂

  25. Oh boy! That stinks! She sure is a happy baby, even with the pink eye plague 😉

  26. awww. I hope they feel better soon! I hate it when little kids get sick!

  27. That's what we had last week too! Double ear infection and pink eye. Ugh! But we got away with it only costing us $35 for the doc visit and meds. Drops in toddler eyes? NOT FUN! I feel your pain 🙁

  28. Oh I am so sorry for all of you. But what a happy baby.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on our baby grand, Declan. He is a great joy in our life and usually a very animated little guy, but I happen to catch him in a very serious moment.


  29. Poor baby! Hope she feels better soon! And my kiddos always get over the horrible diaper side effect reaction when I feed them lots of probiotic infused yogurt with their antibiotics.
    I'm banking on daycare being worth it, though. Hopefully they won't be as sick in the future when they're mainstreamed into the world since they were constantly sick the entire 4 years they were in daycare! 😉

  30. I am so sorry to hear this news. I surely hope that your girls…and you…have a much better week this week. I hope that both girls are well by now. I am sending you all hugs.

  31. Ugh, we just had pink eye too last week. It is hideous!

    Sending healthy hugs your way….

    How it is possible for her to still be so cute and sick at the same time! 🙂

  32. Poor babies & POOR MAMA! Hope everyone is better now 🙂
