Ear infection

My son has just completed 4 months. He has suffered from ear infection 4days back. We consulted a paediatric who gave him an antibiotic syrup. Could you please tell me how safe is using an antibiotic for a 4mnths old baby. Also since today morning, he has started to move his jaws as though he has something in his mouth to chew. Is this action somehow related to his ear infection?

Ya the movement of jaw can be due to some irritation in his ear,coming to antibiotics when u are only saying it's infection,antibiotics should be used otherwise the infection will not come down that to in a 4 month old baby it's dangerous if infection increases,don't take risk please use as prescribed by doctor n trust ur doctor
