Natural Remedies for Ear Infections in Children

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Natural Remedies for Ear Infections in Children

Ear aches are a common complaint for many children. An ear infection can be explained as an inflammation of the middle ear. Unlike other aches, this one cannot be soothed by scratching or applying pressure and hence makes children cranky. Ear infections are usually triggered by bacteria or viruses. This causes inflammation that narrows the tube in the ear and allows fluid to build up. This fluid buildup is responsible for the pain. 

However, not all ear infections need to be treated with medication. When it comes to treating ear aches in children, picking a natural remedy is a much better option ,since it has no side effects and can address the root cause of the infection. Here are a few natural remedies for earaches:

  1. Compress: Hot and cold compresses are very effective ways of treating pain and can be used for earaches as well. Place an ice pack or a warm, moist compress over the ear to soothe the ache. Heat relaxes the muscles and stimulates blood flow while ice controls inflammation and swelling. Hot and cold compresses should not be applied for over 20 minutes at a time. 
  2. Water: Some actions can help open up the eustachian tube to the middle ear. Swallowing is one such action. To encourage your child to swallow, offer him lots of fluids. 
  3. Oil: Before using oil to treat an earache ensure that your child is not suffering from a ruptured eardrum and there is no fluid leaking from the ear. Pouring a few drops of warm olive oil or sesame oil can help soothe the pain by opening up the eustachian tube. It can also prevent the buildup of excessive ear wax and form a protective layer on the outer ear against bacteria and other infections. 
  4. Elevate the head: Elevating a child's head can help improve sinus drainage. When it comes to children, instead of using a pillow below their head, place the pillow below the mattress to create a gradual slope. 
  5. Onion: Onions can be used in many different ways to treat earaches. You could either juice an onion and put a few drops of the same in the ear or slice an onion in half and heat it before placing it over the ear like an ear muff. Onion contains anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help soothe earaches effectively and quickly. 

If the earache does not reduce or if there is a discharge from the ear, do not continue to self treat it and consult a doctor immediately.

It's normal. Don't bother about it just explain in simple way the true life after marriage. Rarely children put in some harsh objects which may create bad complication. Explain her. She is already adult and will understand it.

Up to six month solely the child should be on breast fed and then after liquid diet and mashed food should be started. You can give him rice water, pulse water, mashed khichadi, mashed potato and other vegetables, biscuit in milk, mashed fruits, fruit juices, cerelac at this stage. The child should be double of his birth weight at the age of 6 month so check his progress by weighing him.

Straining while passing urine is common in infants. In case you notice any other symptoms like abdominal pain, pus or blood stained urine, fever on and off, then get a complete urine analysis done to rule out urinary infections. Also give her plenty of water so that she urinates frequently.

Breastfeeding may not necessarily come naturally to us. It is a good idea to get your facts right about breastfeeding before your baby is born, and also to seek help with establishing successful breastfeeding.

My daughter is 7 months old and not taking anything except her mother's milk. What should I do. Whenever we try to put anything in her mouth she just spits it out.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Persist with the efforts, children take variable time to like the food. Eat along with the child and let him see how you eat the same food. Parents are role model for children. Be patient, don't loose heart, so long as he is active and putting on weight.

My baby is 5 month old, so can we start to give her water and milk additionally with feed.
She needs to be given breast feed 4hrly ten minutes on each breast. Even now she demand in between than you should give two to three soup like cereal based home preparation in milk or curd half cup at a time. I hope I solved your problem. Don't stop breast feeds gradually reduce number. Never give breast feed after 11 pm. Jitne machine ka balak utne hi ghante ke baad maa ka dudh pilaye. To say 5months old should be fed after 5hrs for 20 min.
