Homeopathy for Ear Infections

Middle ear infections are very common in children, this infection occurs behind the eardrum where a virus or bacteria cause inflammation. This inflammation causes a build up of fluid resulting in pain and pressure. If the ear is left unattended it may cause perforated eardrum. It is very important to seek proper care when you have a middle ear infection.

Causes of Ear Infections

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Fungus
  • Malformed ear canal
  • Teething
  • Exposure to cold dry wind

Chronic infections may lead to hearing loss and may require grommets to be inserted to drain the fluid behind the eardrum.

Homeopathy can help with the symptoms of ear infections and the it will address the associated symptoms of ear infections- high temperature, irritability, pain, loss of appetite and loss of sleep, it can stop their recurrence by boosting the immune system. Homeopathic treatment is rapid and gentle, when a child is in acute pain the proper remedy provides relief within minutes to one hour. In my experience children are vey quick to heal and ear infections are very manageable avoiding the need for antibiotics and surgery.

Remedies that can help

  • Belladonna- Helps with severe throbbing ear pain, redness of the ear internally and externally, child may have a high temperature and rubbing their ear. Symptoms worse at night and for lying down.

  • Pulsatilla- Helps the child with a fever that comes and goes, earache that will wake the child, child cries easily, very clingy and needs comfort. There may be a discharge from the ear with hearing diminished, symptoms worse at night and for heat.

  • Chamomolla- Helps with earaches that occur with teething, high temperatures, one cheek red the other cheek pale. There is great anger and irritability and the child doesn’t know what he wants. Symptoms worse at night, for touch and after a cold wind.

  • Kali mur- Helps to dissolve the fluid in the middle ear, Eustachian tube and nasal cavities avoiding the need for grommets.
