    Not sure about infections but my SIL puts Vicks on a cottonball and places in the ear for earaches. At the same time she uses the Vicks under the nose for any congestion.

    thank you for the suggestions. we did a salt compress for Everett last night and today we are picking up motrin and childrens tylenol. I don't have much experience with ear infections because my daughter only had one as an infant 9 years ago

    So we ended up doing olive oil and tea tree oil in the ear and it worked great

    And see a doctor if it doesn't improve. Ear infections can be fatal if left untreated.

    Went to the Dr today and I have bronchitis. They put me on a med I'm not familiar with,codene. It must be something good because it was a controlled substance
