Children are often prone to ear infections. A wonderful home remedy is a GGarlic and Mullein ear drop solution. The ear drops work for both viral and bacterial infections while antibiotics only work for treating bacterial infections. It is important to begin treatment with the Garlic and Mullein drops at the first onset of symptoms as well as schedule an appointment with your pediatrician.
Place the bottle of ear drops in a loose pocket near your body(heat) for 30 minutes before administrating for the comfort of your child. Have your child lay their head on a pillow tilting to one side. Gently place 2 to 3 drops in ear, and cover ear with cotton ball. Repeat on other side.
