  • Garlic oil in your ears, vit. C, echinacea. (unless you are allergic). The garlic oil kills infections, the vit. C and echinacea will boost your immune system and help fight off the infection.

  • I would at least call your dr and see what they say. The previous poster said echniacea, but I have heard that you are supposed to stay away from that while your prego. My pharmacist is actually the one that told me that.

  • echinacea is safe, goldenseal is contraindicated. I was told this by a naturopath, and an herbalist. :)

  • I would like to add, that you can always call your doctor. There is no need to take advice from someone online. I was merely saying what I would do. I do not go to the doctor for most things, and use herbs and just household remedies for everything. So while I give you my advice, you are not expected to follow it! :)

  • Went to doctor, they gave me some antibiotics. So hopefully that'll work. Thanks for advice!
