  1. hi there,
    do you have any suggestions for glue ear? My 6 year old daughter has it in both ears, and really want to avoid going down the surgical route, thanks

    1. I use a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and rubbing alcohol as ear drops to prevent ear infections. It can cut the gunk of glue ear, also.

  2. I wish I would have read this at the beginning of February. My little one came down with a nasty ear infection and her ear drum burst (Dr. said it had a hole in it). I had tried the garlic oil at home initially but then her eardrum burst and started draining profusely. We ended up at the Pediatrician and on antibiotics. After her round of penicillin she broke out in a rash and after another Dr. visit they concluded she is allergic to penicillin. Because of the allergy, the penicillin had done nothing to heal her infection. She ended up on another round of a different antibiotic and benadryl. What a pain, I would have much preferred the natural route.

    1. What a bummer… I’m so sorry about that. Now that you’ve been though it once, if it ever happens again, you’ll be prepared. From my understanding, there’s major pain relief when the ear drum bursts since the ear can now drain. It doesn’t really do any damage either other than not being able to hear well until it heals. I think the only time there can be long-term damage is when your child experiences ear infections over and over again and the ear drum continues to burst. It can cause scarring then. Anyway, be sure to be prepared just in case it ever happens. My kids have never had a full-blown ear infection because every time I even think they may be coming down with one, I use our herbal ear infection oil. Glad you liked the articles… be sure to share them if you found them helpful and thank you for your comment!

  3. Hi Meagan! I tried clicking on all of the hyperlinks within your article, but none of them work… they either bring me right back to main article or the A Mama’s Story link doesn’t work at all!

          1. Hey, Elissa. This post links to a couple of older guest posts I wrote several years ago. The links are working for me, but you can find an up-to-date post about ear infections right here on my blog.
