Homeopathy for Ear Infections
A middle ear infection can be caused by several factors, normally pathogenic like a common cold. Typically, the infection travels to the ear(s) via the eustachian tubes. There are several symptoms that are characteristic of an ear infection including pain, redness, ear discharge, pressure, fever, decreased hearing and vertigo.
