Anyone else?

It seems that it is just me this happens too. The past year I've started to get more and more ear infections (and sinus infections too which resulted in surgery, but that's beside the point) and it doesn't just hurt in my ear, I am sore from the top of my head on the sore ear side all the way down my neck. Anyone else had a lot of ear infections before?? I realize I should probably ask a Dr about this, but after my whole ordeal with the celiac, I don't like or trust the Dr too much.


  1. Actually, my wife has has several ear infections in recent months too, which has seemed strange. I remember talking to one other person recently who was having the same problem as well. Creepy.

  2. I get a lot of ear infections as well. I have had a lot my whole life, even to the point of getting tubes when I was a kid. My secret fix is to put rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and then stick it in my infected ear. I then lay down with my opposite ear down so that the alcohol can run down into the infected ear (you have to put a good amount on the cotton swab). I usually will do this when I go to bed and by morning the alcohol has dried up most the infection and I feel almost completely better. Every once in a while I have to do it two nights in a row! That is my way of avoiding the dr.'s office because I get them so often. However, I am NOT a dr. so... attempt this at your own risk- my advice does not come with a guarantee, but it does work wonders for me! I would never try it on my kids though- I just take them straight to the dr. when I think that one of them is getting an infection! Whew... that was a long comment, sorry!
