ear infections

aellis722May 30, 2014

What are some causes of ear infections? I get a ear infection all the time in my right ear usually 2to3 times a year. Are there any home remedies I could do at home that might help heal it up. I already use ear plugs when im in a pool or shower to prevent water from getting in there. What are some things that can be done to prevent them from coming back?

Try using hydrogen peroxide in the ears and if you hear it bubbling you know there is something there [possible infection] This help keep the ears clean and sterile

I don't know about ears, they are not recommending HP for cuts scratches, etc. anymore. They say it causes more harm than good. I would recommend going to an appropriate doctor, an ear specialist.

I had to do a long search web search before I found anyone saying anything bad about HP and they were promoting drugs.
hydrogen peroxide is H2O2 it is water with one extra oxygen molecule. A lot of rain falls as HP and quickly changes back to water losing the extra oxygen.
I might got to the doctor so he can tell me what it might be ut I know that if I want it cured its up to me. They only have drugs to treat symptoms

I use vodka. A couple drops in each ear a couple or three times a week. Has been working for me for years. I am a swimmer.

Doug, what I read was for cuts and scraps so they were not promoting drugs. It was something that came out in our local paper.

Thanks everyone for all the replies. I have used hydrogen peroxide allot for all my ear problems, that was recommended my the doctor. In the past I have had some success with equal parts vinegar and rubbing alcohol. This last time I just used hp and saw some ear drops at the vitamin shoppe that has grapefruit seed extract and tea tree oil from a company called nutribiotic that seemed to work well although they are it is very thick.
