Bath after Adenoidectomy, Tonsillectomy or ear surgery.

When can the child bath after adenotonsillectomy.?

Ans He can take bath anytime or better next morning as routine.If Myringotomy with Grommet insertion have also been undertaken then it is of utmost importance not to let water insider ear canal otherwise infection can develop.  To prevent this, use cotton plug smeared with vaseline or some ointment during bath. the advantage of using vaseline is that it repels water and it keeps cotton fibers bind together so that when you remove the plug, no cotton fiber is left behind.
