More and more physicians are holding off on antibiotics for kids’ ear infections. This is based on numerous studies that have shown that 80% of otherwise healthy kids with acute otitis media get better without antibiotics. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests “watchful waiting” for 2-3 days to see if the ear infection does not clear by itself.
But rather than “watchful waiting” I have found that treating with “ear oil”, a combination of garlic, muellin_(check spelling) and olive oil, and homeopathic treatment is very beneficial.
