Ear infections can affect anyone, including adults, but are far more common in children. Ear infections are usually caused by bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens. Some of the more common symptoms of ear infections include chills, earache, drainage from the ear, buzzing in the ear, itching in the ear, discomfort in the ear or ear canal, nausea, vomiting, fever and diarrhea. Often times children with ear infections will become irritable and will scream and cry for attention.

For people that do not feel comfortable taking any type of homeopathic remedy without medical supervision, it’s best to see a licensed homeopath and have them select the homeopathic remedy best suited for them. For people that are comfortable selecting their own homeopathic remedy, it’s easy to purchase homeopathic remedies at many chain grocery stores and vitamin shops, as well as online.
