DX: recurrent otitis media and chronic otitis media with effusion

As per diagnosis, Appropriate code for recurrent otitis media is H65.197(Other acute nonsuppurative otitis media recurrent, unspecified ear)
and H65.499(Other chronic nonsuppurative otitis media, unspecified ear) is an appropriate code for chronic otitis media with effusion
