Information on Ear infections in Children
Middle ear infections affect the area behind the ear drum and a build-up of fluid and pus behind the ear drum leads to raised pressure, pain and decreased hearing.
Infection in the outer ear canal, called otitis externa, can also cause inflammation, pain, discharge from the ear and itchiness. Ear infections are most common in children between the ages of six months and three years.
There are a number of possible causes of ear infections and bacteria, viruses and fungi can all be to blame. Colds and allergies may also have a role to play when they cause inflammation of the Eustachian tube, blocking normal drainage of the ear and leading to middle ear infection.
Young children are more likely than others to develop middle ear infections because when the Eustachian tube is still maturing, it is oriented more horizontally than vertically, making drainage more difficult than it is in older children. Fluids can collect and become blocked, creating an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria and other organisms.
In many cases, ear infections recur after conventional treatment and may become chronic and difficult to get rid of. Many parents express concern over the frequent need for antibiotic treatment in children who seem to have one ear infection after the other, especially those who are prone to congestion, colds and flu.
Symptoms of Ear Infections:
In infants and toddlers, look for the following warning signs of an ear infection:
* Pulling or scratching at the ear
* Hearing problems
* Discharge/fluids draining from the ear
* Irritability and crying
* Fever (possibly red cheeks)
* Difficulty falling asleep
Older children may also complain of:
* Pain or aching in one or both of the ears
* Itching of the ears
* Dizziness or loss of balance
What is the conventional treatment for ear infections?
Treatment depends on the cause of the itching. For example, if itching is related to thrush, antifungal creams may be prescribed to treat the problem. If itching is due to a food allergy, then the allergen should be identified and avoided. Treatment may be topical (i.e. applied to the surface of the skin) to stop the itching and may also include oral medications such as anti-histamines.
How can natural remedies help?
Natural remedies can effectively reduce the pain, inflammation, throbbing and discomfort of ear infections and treat the underlying causes without the side-effects and lowered immune functioning so common with antibiotic use.
Natural remedies can also be very effective in the prevention of recurring ear infections, thereby guarding against hearing impairment caused by chronic ear infections.
What are Eddy Ear Sprinkles?
Eddy Ear Sprinkles are an effective natural alternative to antibiotic treatment of junior ear infections and are an excellent companion to our Ear-Ok ear drops, which are used internally directly in the ear. Eddy Ear Sprinkles are very easy to administer to babies and small children.
Use Eddy Ear Sprinkles:
* To safely treat ear infections in babies and children under 10
* As a natural alternative to antibiotic treatment of ear infections
* To treat bacterial, viral and fungal infections of the ear
* As a companion to Ear-Ok ear drops for a complete solution
* To reduce inflammation, pain and throbbing in the ears
* To prevent recurrence of chronic ear infections
* To boost immune system functioning
What are the Ingredients?
Eddy Ear Sprinkles contain the following herbal and homeopathic ingredients:
Chamomile was regarded by ancient Anglo-Saxons as one of the nine sacred herbs given to the world. In modern times it is widely used as an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and soothing herb. Chamomile is also used for treating common infections including colds, bronchitis, throat and ear infections.
Echinacea purpurea is the best known and researched herb for stimulating the immune system. Over 500 scientific studies have documented the effectiveness of this herb. Research has shown that Echinacea increases the activity of the immune system cells, stimulates new tissue growth for wound healing, reduces inflammation and inhibits growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi. These properties make Echinacea the ideal herb for treating infection and reducing inflammation in the ear.
Belladonna (30C) treats ear infections of sudden onset with high fever and swollen glands.
Pulsatilla (12C) is a homeopathic ingredient used to treat infection following exposure to cold or dampness. This proven ingredient is particularly effective when there is moderate fever and the ear is red and inflamed, producing a yellow/green discharge.
Ferrum phos. (D6) is a biochemic tissue salt which has many uses in the body. Two of the most important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum Phos. to combat all types of infection and inflammation. Ferrum phos. also helps to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and thus improves the body’s ability to distribute oxygen-rich blood and iron to all cells, thereby facilitating healing. Ferrum phos. is recommended at the first stage of any infection for fast resolution of the symptoms.
Calc. Sulph. (D6) is another biochemic tissue salt useful in suppurating conditions including abscesses and ear infections. Calc. sulph. also speeds up the natural healing process.
Like all our remedies, Eddy Ear Sprinkles contain no gluten or artificial flavors, preservatives or colorants.
How has Eddy Ear helped others?
“Having used your natural products before, your site was my first choice when my 3 year old got a middle ear infection. As usual, delivery was prompt and the remedies were effective. My sonï¿½s pain eased within the first few hours and he was back to his old self less than a week later. Itï¿½s great for me to know I have a supplier of natural remedies that I can trust!” – Judith Palmer
“Just wanted to let you know how much Ear-Ok Drops and the Ear Sprinkles have helped my 4 year old son, Troy. He has had ear infections almost constantly for 18 months and we were really getting desperate. Course after course of antibiotics only helped for a few weeks and then we were back at square one again and he was beginning to look run down and black circles under his eyes from all the antibiotics, which I really hated! Using your natural ear drops and medicine with the last course seems to have solved the problem. Four months on and all still looks good. I don’t know why more doctors don’t recommend this great remedy. Thanks again.” – Relieved mom
“My little girl had so many ear infections that the doctor said that one more and we would insert grommets which I didn’t want. Because of all the antibiotics (which didn’t work properly in any case) I was fed up, not to mention the expense! My friend recommended that I try natural remedies which I found on Google. These sprinkles are so easy to give and my daughter loves them. But best of all they work and we haven’t been back to the doctor since!” – Anna Belle
