Well call me a cookie and fill me with chips:
The guidelines stress that about 8 in 10 children with ear infections get better with no antibiotics at all.
Oh and get this, not only do most ear infections not need antibiotics, but what you should *really* treat with kiddo ear infections is the PAIN of said infection, and that antibiotics *at most* shave a day off of the actual infection itself.
Standard disclaimers apply: use your best judgment and consult your doctor before doing anything rash.
*note: don’t take my word for it, confront your doctor on it. I’m not a doctor, just a mom.
