Has anyone tried Cipro HC Otic for recurrent ear infections? My sister swears by it. I have not tried it yet. Dd (12 months old) has had 4 rounds of antibiotics and a shot for a persistent ear infection. The garlic ear oil did not help either. What is a rice sock?
thank you

..after 4 rounds of antibiotics there really is only one solution as far as I know:

Probiotic supplementation, in order to replace what are now pretty devastated intestinal flora.

The Power of Probiotics thread has all of the details.

I culture Jarrow and Ethical Nutrients Acidophilus and Bifidobacteria as two separate yogurts for my family.

If there is any chance your son has dairy sensitivity use a nondairy powder:

Give him bananas or even a fruit smoothie (strawberries, bananas, mango, papaya, etc) with the powder to supply the soluble fiber that the flora need to feed in the intestine.

If your breastfeeding, give the powder while he's nursing. (They actually mention it on the link)

Good luck,

Ray
