hello all i hope you can help me out. our ds is 19 months old and has had a fever for a few days. we finally broke down and took him to the dr and he said that both ears are inflamed and prescribed antibiotics. my question? is there anything we can do for ds and bypass the antibiotics? he has never been vaccinated and i really don't want to use the meds if it not absolutely necessary and the dr didnt sound completely confident about the infection. just said ears were inflamed. please help! i hate seeing my baby in so much pain and discomfort. just want the best for him. also we have given him tylenol periodically to ease the pain. is there anything else we can do?
