Hear Us Out: Ways to Treat Ear Infections in Children

Many sleepless nights are spent soothing children as they struggle to deal with ear infections. It’s no coincidence that ear infections are the number one reason antibiotics are prescribed in the U.S. However, there’s no need for these pesky infections to keep coming up like a greatest hits playlist from last year’s Spotify.  Agatha and Dr. Greene discuss ways to identify an ear infection, how to treat them naturally, and even ways they can be prevented. The surprising twist is that many ear infections don’t need to be treated with antibiotics at all – oftentimes they heal just fine on their own. Good news for kids and parents alike! Join Agatha and Dr. Greene each week as they discuss common pediatric ailments and the many ways they can be treated from home.    Thanks for listening! We love our listeners!
