Ear Infections without antibiotics, what's a child to do? email to the editor
Planet Chiropractic News

Earlier today, we reported on a study published in the September 2006 issue of JAMA, regarding children's ear infections and the use of antibiotics > > > Most Kids Ear Infections Healing without Antibiotics. The study basically concluded that most children suffering from ear infections do not require antibiotics since the body's own defense mechanisms will resolve the problem naturally, when given time to heal. Interestingly, early in the day, some major news networks ran headlines that read similar to the following... "childhood ear infections may not require drugs for treatment." Those headlines have since been replaced by one's more specific to the often unnecessary use of antibiotics when treating ear infections rather than suggesting that children do not require drugs for ear infection treatment.

Here is a summary of some articles related to the topic as well as some resources located related to ear infections. Please note that major news sites typically kill off links to their news content after a few weeks. If that becomes the case, I suggest searching the entire title of the article to see if you can locate it elsewhere.
