Eat a gluten free one next time!! Its hard to make good decisions with food when your exhausted from caring for a sick baby:/. Are you following up with the doctor? I'm taking him in tomorrow to confirm its ear infections and see if the garlicc oil is helping. I'm afraid the pedi might get mad that I started the garlic oil...I will probably just smile and nod

I wish I owned a otoscope....I know how to check a dogs ear.....I could read a book or two and get it I bet ;)



I wish I could switch to this more naturopath doctor that practices out of his home but he is soo full :(. Plus I have medicaid and they force you to go to well visits even if you dont vax :(

Idk I did it for 3 and a half days. I would switch to just her feet if she seems no longer bothered by her ears after a few days. Yeah the doctor said his ears look perfect but he has a virus....so I'm betting the virus caused the ear infectiona...so if they had prescribed him antibiotics it wouldnt of done shit!



His fever is 101.7 right now....hopefully it breaks on its own...I hope it doesnt get to 104 again :(

The zithromax was for the ear infection. I.bout an otoscope but I can't tell if the ear infection is gone. All I see is garlic oil! Eek



But I'm.taking her to the doctor again Wednesday to see if it worked

Well thats what I mean...antibiotics will not cure an ear infection caused by a virus....only ear infections caused by bacteria...some docs prescribe it anyway....lame




Did you look up pics of healthy ears vs irritated /infected ones?



Wait a day if she seems better and check again maybe?

Keep up the garlic ladies!! It wont stop being helpful! Also, you could boil water with the garlic in and let them sniff the steam to clear up any congestion. In poorer countries they do this to kill pneumonia! (Which is in the lungs, obviously).



Also henna has a cooling effect so you could put some on feet (or hands if u dont mind them turning bright orange/red for a couple of weeks lol) in order to reduce a fever if it really does get too high.

Wow! Thank you for the tips...boiling the garlic makes alot of sense...I wonder if I could put the garlic oil in a humidifier and it have the same affect. I use eucalyptus oil and lavender oil usually.



For future use anyway....he doesnt have congestion
