Dairy intolerance & Ear infections

Does anyone have any good links showing the connection between possible dairy intolerance and ear infections? I have a good friend whose DS is forever battling ear infections. I mentioned to her that it could be a sign of a dairy intolerance, and she seemed intrigued. She went to her ped, and mentioned it, and her ped totally poo pooed the idea of it, saying the evidence linking the two wasn't strong enough, and suggested tubes instead I know I've read some great info on the subject before, but didn't bookmark and can't for the life of me find it. Any help would be great! TIA!

Re: Dairy intolerance & Ear infections

I don't know about actual evidence. I know that I have dairy intolerance and had chronic ear infections until I was 8. But I had a lot of environmental allergies as well. Two of my children are dairy intolerant and each has only had one ear infection a piece.

If her doctor isn't willing to check it out, she could do an elimination diet and see if that makes a difference.
