natural ear infection treatment

DD is 5 months old, hasn't been feverish or extra fussy, shes just been rubbing one of her ears lately... maybe sign of an ear infection? Or something else?

What are some tried and true ear infection treatments you've used?

I figured if it gets worse at all or continues we'd just begin a natural treatment.

Re: natural ear infection treatment

We recently used garlic oil on DD & that worked well.

I'd do BM or warm garlic oil several times a day.

Re: natural ear infection treatment

Pulling on her ear can also be from teething. Depending on which tooth it can cause her ears to itch or feel odd or even cause pain in her ears depending on which nerves it is bothering.

Re: natural ear infection treatment

I know a lot of people that have done the BM thing. I used Hylands drops, but mine were a bit older (maybe 16m) at the time.
