    Hi Everybody! I am very new here and have a question. I have a wicked awful ear infection. I am taking amoxicillin but I am getting no relief! Does anyone have any suggestions? I have high blood pressure so decongesting things are somewhat out of the question. Does anyone find Allegra works better for allergies than Claritin or Zyrtec? Thanks Flibble.

    I had what I thought (and the doctor's thought) was an ear infection for two years - sore, inflamed, swollen with pus coming out of it. I couldn't lie on it sometimes and bathing and getting water in it was hell. Tried everything.

    Went back to the doctor with new symptoms, including spontaneous face peeling (very embarrassing - I was sitting in a meeting and rubbed my face and I was holding strips of skin - YEUCH!). Doctor said I have developed allergic dermatitis and this was what was wrong with my ear. She gave me drops to put in my ear to treat the dermatitis - well, within a day I noticed a difference and it has almost gone now. I don't have it with me but will add to this message tomorrow with what the drops are - maybe this is what is wrong and you could try them.

    Regards

    I habe been on Allegra D for about 6 weeks and I think it works a lot better than claratin or claranex. I too have high blood pressure but it seems to be ok for me.

    hope your ears clear up soon.

    As promised ... the stuff I am using for my allergic dermatitis is called Locorten-Vioform, made by Novartis which appears to be a UK-based company.
