Ear Infection

Well I caved in and took Alex to urgent care this morning. After having two sleepless nights I decided it was time to figure out what was going on with my poor little girl! The Dr. told us Alex has an ear infection in her left ear. It made sense to me because she woke up last night about ever 45 minutes crying and saying owie. I feel so bad because I got so frustrated that we where getting no sleep but our poor little girl was in pain. So we have her on amoxicillion (not sure on the spelling) and hopefully tonight will be a better night. The Dr. also mentioned that she had dry skin and I told him about her scalp (it is really dry and itchy and was bleeding in some spots) and he said we should only give her a bath every other night if that and that we should be using a thicker lotion like vasaline or aquaphore. I learned a lot and hopefully her scalp will be back to normal in no time and her ear infection will be gone!
