My daughter who will be a year old next week has had medical problems since she had her first seizure at 7 months old. I have other threads on here with all the details but to sum it up she first had seizures then was hospitalized for a week (her first Christmas) with mastoiditis & a sinus infection. Following surgery to drain the fluid and place tubes she was doing much better and we thought the infection was causing the seizures. A culture of the fluid in her ear came back Streptococcus pneumoniae. She was discharged on the antibiotic Augmenten for 1-week (Following a week of IV antibiotics).
She had more seizures in January and they did a nasal culture. The results were as follows...
She's been on the antibiotic Cefdinir (Omnicef) 125 MG since January 30th. The doctor (ENT) did another culture of an apparent active infection yesterday and prescribed 10 more days of antibiotics for a total of 40-days. He said he has never heard of the Steno. bacteria.
I'm concerned about her because these infections just don't seem to be going away and she will be on antibiotics 75-days her first year of life, all in the past 4-months. Before that she was fine.
I believe will everything going on with her they are missing a key diagnosis - any ideas, thoughts, questions I should ask the docs.?
Thank you for your time,
