I would love to have some on hand just in case, but I would hate to buy it JIC and have it expire before we would ever need it.

Not sure. A friend is borrowing it right now so I can't check the expiration! I think it's at least a couple years out though if it's similar to our regular liquid GSE.

Try a mixture of coconut oil and tea tree oil, I had a friend who cured her sons ear infection that way. Hope this helps

We used garlic mullein oil with good results. That and warm compresses and maybe tylenol if it seemed necessary.

Garlic oil almost always works for us! Sautee some fresh garlic in olive oil for 10 min. Cool and strain. Let it rest inside the ear about 5 min, holding a warm washcloth over it.

Re: Anyone treated ear infection without antibiotics?

Most ear infections are viral, which means that the abx do jack-all anyway. You can just wait and see and treat with ibuprofen and warm compresses. See the dr again if it doesn't improve or if it gets worse.
