Avoiding contact with people who have upper respiratory tract infections

Otitis media is commonly precipitated by an upper respiratory tract infection. Therefore. children prone to otitis should avoid people known to have an upper respiratory tract infection.Option A: A bottle-fed child should be fed in an upright position because feeding the child in the supine position may actually precipitate otitis by allowing the formula to pool in the pharyngeal cavity.Option B: Amoxicillin. when prescribed. should be given with food to prevent stomach upset.Option C: Cotton swabs can cause injuries such as tympanic perforation. They may be used to clean the outer ear. but they should never be inserted into the ear canal.
