    Default Relief from ear ache?

    I think poor DD has an ear ache. She has been moaning and crying on and off since she went to bed and is grabbing at her left ear. She has just finished a round of antibiotics for an ear infection on that side so i am wondering if it is a flare up. Anyway, she has had panadol and also dimetapp (before we realised it was her ear -she also has a cold) so i am hesitant to give her neurofen until the dimetapp wears off. But the poor thing is still struggling to sleep. Any tips to help her sleep for a while? She is dozing on my lap at the moment with her head raised which seems to help a bit

    Goto your healthfood shop and get some oil of garlic ear drops, they are amazing! I literally noticed a difference in minutes! For now u can slightly warm a drop or 2 of olive oil and put in her ear, pop a warm heat pack on that side to draw it out. Take her off cows milk until she is better, studies show ear infections are caused by dairy. Dose her up with pro biotics, ABs lower the immune system, something you don't want over winter when she trying to get better from being sick

    Thanks for the reply. Will try a heat pack and she is already taking probiotics. I forgot to mention she has grommets - not sure whether we can use drops safely or not. Hopefully a heat pack might help at least tonight

    If she has grommets I would TOTALLY get her dairy free, I have read so many studies on dairy being the culprit on ear infections. My brother went dairy free and didn't need grommets. I'll try do research for ear drops after grommets, your health food shop would know the answer tho, they can ring the company to find out too.

    The reason for the no dairy is dairy is mucous forming, she could be allergic or intolerant.
