    Default Ear infections

    My DD (12mo) has had ear infections constantly since 8 mo. She ends up on antibiotics and it has flared up even while on them. She's basically just finished 3 weeks of ABs on Monday and it flared again yesterday afternoon. We have a ENT appointment on 20 Nov (earliest we could get).

    I don't like having her constantly on antibiotics and am wondering how else we could treat them or what other things have people tried that have eased at least the pain (can't use Panadol/nurofen constantly).

    I've heard that sometimes osteopath treatment could work. Has anyone had any experience with that and how has it helped?
    TIA.

    I would try accupunturist, chiropractor or osteopath. All of these work great on kids! You could also try try taking her of dairy as it is mucus producing.

    Default Ear infections

    I've always treated ear infections with garlic oil.
