Ear infection is a disorder holding the first place in the pediatricians’ records. Up to the age of three, four out of five children come to the physician with this problem. In figures, it means about 124 million consultations yearly only for this disease.
Some of the children coming for consultation have a predisposition and run high risk of ear infections. They are the children suffering from allergies, children who were exposed to alcohol and cigarette smoke during their fetal period, and when they were breastfed or the ones who are fed only with powder milk.
This sensitivity is caused by the inflammation of the lymph tissue cells around the auricular canals. As a result, these auricular canals grow obstructed, and liquid collects in the respective area. Where the middle ear is affected , the disease is called otitis media and where the inner ear is affected, it is called otitis interna. In both cases, there can be noticed purulent discharges in the ear pavilion. The standard treatment of ear infections consists of antibiotics and punctions. In the both cases , there are no beneficent effects in the long run or complete recovery. The children who are given antibiotics experience many side effects. A punction may destroy the eardrum by perforating the ear membrane, in which case it may come to deafness.
When an ear infection is discovered, the doctor must see in the first place whether the child is allergic to something and treat the allergy, if any. It may be a food allergy, in which case the situation must be judged with utmost seriousness in order to find the appropriate treatment. In the traditional medicine there are herbal extracts that treat this disease, and healing is guaranteed. The traditional medicine physician decides upon the dosage, the frequency and the duration of the treatment .
