Ear/Sinus Infection HELP!?

Posted by on Aug. 28, 2012 at 11:04 AM

My DD has an ear infection that seems to have attacked her sinuses, too. It satrted about 3 days ago. Any advice? I really dont want to start antibiotics! But I also dont want this infection to get out of control. She got green mucous in her nose and anytime i touch her ears with slight pressure, she says, "ow" and turns away. She is fussier than normal, but shes still playing and laughing, just not as much as usual.


I really appreciate your advice!

Breast milk! You can try putting it up her nose to help clear it out.

I would also make some garlic oil for her ear-- I use 2 pts olive oil with 1 pt fresh crushed garlic cloves, simmer until garlic is soft. Strain, cool, and put a few drops in each ear about 3 times a day.

Garlic is often more potent than antibiotics.
