Re: Alternative to antibiotics for ear infection?

I've used a couple drops breastmilk mixed with a couple drops Hyland's homeopathic earache drops with great success!

Re: Alternative to antibiotics for ear infection?

I second the Similisan ear drops for the pain (you can get them at your local health/herbal store) and waiting it out. We tried this approach during our last little cold/earache and she got better so fast. I have also heard that breastmilk has super antibodies that will help heal earaches but have never tried it.
When waiting it out, just be sure to watch for high fever, unusual discharge from the ear and extreme pain. In those cases, I would go to the doctor, just to be safe and prevent hearing loss, like PP mentioned. Go with your instinct on whether its a wait and see situation or something more serious.

What is the chiropractor for? Does that link to the neck being out of place or something?
