Homeopathic Treatment For Ear Treatment

Glue ear is a condition that is very common in young children and infants. Approximately four in five children will have had the condition by the age of 5. The medical term for glue ear is otitis media with effusion. This condition is generally caused by repeated middle ear infections resulting in an accumulation of sticky fluid behind the ear drum.

A different kind of ear infection (otitis externa) affects the outer ear and the sensitive skin inside the ear canal; it often starts with a scratch that gets infected by bacteria or fungus (swimmer’s ear), becoming swollen, inflamed, and very painful.

The child may also have problems with speech and language. Homeopathic remedies can be given safely and effectively to young children to treat glue ear. Conventional treatment involves antibiotics, steroids and in some cases surgery. Repeated use of antibiotics in young children can compromise natural immune function, and lead to more infections! It is therefore advisable to consider homeopathy and other natural treatments such as cranial osteopathy.

Homeopathic Medecine : 

* Aconitum napellus:This remedy is indicated if an earache comes on suddenly with cutting, throbbing pain—often after exposure to cold and wind, or after a shaking experience. The person usually is fearful, agitated, and restless. Fever may be high and thirst is strong. Symptoms are often worse near midnight, and can even wake the person up.

* Merc Sol : is a homeopathic remedy that is commonly prescribed for infections. This natural remedy is indicated for ear discharge that is smelly and thick. The child may also have a lot of saliva during sleep.

* Calc Carb : should be given if the discharge from the ear, and the glands are swollen. The Calc Carb child is generally chubby and sweats from the head at night.

* Belladonna: Intense bouts of earache that come and go very suddenly, with heat and inflammation, suggest a need for this remedy. Pain can be pounding or throbbing, and may be worse from jarring. The person usually has a fever, a flushed red face, eyes that are sensitive to light, and skin that is hot to touch. The right ear is most often affected. A child needing Belladonna may feel drowsy with the fever, or be restless and have nightmares.
