Ear-Nose and Throat Doctor (Pediatric) Questions Ear Infections

Are there any home remedies for ear infections?

My son has an ear infection, and only that. He doesn't have any other symptoms of a cold or flu. Should I treat his ear infection with a home remedy? Are there any natural remedies for ear infections?

Unfortunately, evidence-based medicine does not show that any home remedies are effective, though clearly they are used extensively. The thing to remember is that antibiotics may not be necessary for children over two years of age, if they did not have high fevers, are not very sick, and do not have severe ear pain.
