Hi, my 13 month old has been poorly since September but no one is listening. He's had a cold since starting nursery and just before xmas I thought it had travelled to his chest so took him to the GP. The GP was dismissive, said his chest sounded clear and to just wait for his cold to clear up. Less than a week later we where back at the docs with him as he had puss coming out of his ear, turns out he had an ear infection that popped and was given a 6day course of anti-biotics. after a few days of being on the antibiotics he seemed to improve significantly, we finished the course and he seemed well for a few days later. But it didn't last long, now he's severely congested again, has an awful cough again and chokes on the mucous that comes up when he's coughing, he is pulling at his ears, putting his fingers in his ears and his balance is wobblyer than normal. He's not sleeping very well despite being completely exhausted, but again no one will listen. We tried to get an appointment today with the out of hours GP but there response was "he's already had antibiotics which would have cleared up any infection" and refused to see him but he's still soo poorly. I just don't know what to do anymore! I almost lost my oldest child to a strep B infection when he was 7 days old cos our then GP was dismissive! I feel so lost!
