Hi,<br><br>
I think my 4 mo ds has an ear infection. Last month the ped thought he might have an e.i. (We were there for 2 mo W.B. at 3 month d/t prematurity-We declined the vaxes). He offered abx at that time but I declined. He seems to be very fussy all day now and has a slight fever. I've tried Hyland teething tablet because he seems like he may be teething. Also, I have given him ear oil twice today followed with some massage behind the ear. I think I will call a chiro tomorow.<br><br>
How long do I try this before resorting to abx, assuming they work? If we do the abx what should I give to avoid the gut flora problems?<br><br>
Thanks.

I know you didn't ask for it, but here is a whole thread on how to get rid of <a href="http://mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=406779" target="_blank"><b>ear infection without using abx</b></a><br><br>
Perhaps you already have all this info - then just ignore.

Hi Gitti,<br><br>
Thanks for your reply. I sent you a pm.<br><br>
Thanks for the link. Yes, I've read that one and a few others I found when doing a search.<br><br>
My baby seems to go in and out of feeling horrible. We are doing the ear drops and hyland's teething tablets. I'm going to try again tomorrow to get into a chiropractor.<br><br>
So how long should I do the ear oil tincture after he seems to feel better consistently? If I stop too soon won't it just fester up again?<br><br>
Anybody know?<br>
Thanks

This info saved us a few years ago. Also went to a pediatric chiro 2x & actually saw the goo come pouring out of his mouth.<br><br>
Good luck!!<br><a href="http://www.healthy.net/asp/templates/article.asp?PageType=article&ID=1175" target="_blank">http://www.healthy.net/asp/templates...rticle&ID=1175</a>
