Ear infection

Posted by M [3124.20] on December 25, 2004 at 17:35:00:

This is hilarous. I've gone to four or five doctors requesting Nystatin and *finally* a doctor gave me an rx for it while also prescribing antibiotics!

The reason I went to this doctor is because of an ear ache I developed on Friday around 1 am. I'm 32 and haven't had a problem like this since I was a little girl so I'm wondering how to get rid of it.

I read the archives. No dairy, see a chiropractor. Are these my only two options? No dairy isn't a problem. But, going to a chiropractor right now stresses me out. Too much to do already so is there an alternative to this?

My eardrum is partically perferated and I have a middle ear infection. This started Friday and my ear has continiously been leaking liquid since. Please advise.

Can't I just drink diet vanilla coke and have this go away???

Dr. Stoll,

I read at Dr. Mercola's site that 3% hydrogen peroxide solution about 2 drops on each ear would help to fight flu. Would you think it might help ear infection,too?

Thanks

M,

The most important thing, which I surely would be doing if I was going through this, is the topical (nasal) decongestant administered like described in the ear archives.

Thanks, Yildiz.

IF the eardrum is perforated, one must be VERY careful about getting ANYTHING in the ear. That is one reason for using the nasal decongestant drops.

Hope this helps.

Dr. Stoll,

If the eardrum is perforated there must be some signs of it. Wouldn't it? I am using this procedure to overcome my flue for the last 3 days, that is why I am asking this. my eardrums were not checked but I have no appearent problems with my ears at this point.So,can I safely continue using it?
