I have a 5 year old son who has had chronic ear infections for his entire life and he has had his tonsils removed and his adenoids removed and has had 4 sets of ear tubes. I am over using regular doctors at this point because obviously they aren't doing a good job at helping my child. I need alternative advice. I do not think that I can put anything in his ears because he has ear tubes (so it's open to the inner ear) -- if I put anything in there it might hurt him really badly. So I am not sure what to do. I have tried the warm onion press on his ear and massaged the eustachian tube and this did help with the pain, but I need help for the infection. I do not want to give him Antibiotics again as we have done that his entire life and now he has leaky gut from that. Any advice? thanks.
