I would, but really really make sure its Garlic oil and not oil of garlic, because if you use the wrong one it will cause him a lot of pain!! He could be screaming because he doesnt want you to put anything in his ears

My son has had 4 ear infections in the last three months. They want to put tubes in his ears in 2 weeks. I tried the drops last night and he screamed in agony??? He also has a really bed diaper rash and we just found out today that he is allergic to the antibiotic he was on so it could have been a number of things maaking him upset. Do you think i should give it another shot??

My experiences with most all ear infections, strongly suggest the use of pure garlic oil - inserted into both ears. I use garlic oil capsules from Walmart.

This has never failed me, and usually works over the course of one night. An exacto knife is used to prick 1 end of the garlic oil capsule, and liquid is squeezed into BOTH ears. (Even if only 1 ear is in pain.) Gently insert cotton into ears, to hold in garlic oil.



Be VERY CAREFUL..to not use OIL OF GARLIC!!! Oil of Garlic consists of the solvent extracted aromatics from garlic, manufactured in much the same way as Oil of Sandalwood. Oil of Garlic is commercially available (although quite pricey) and is pugnacious and morbidly pungent...and VERY caustic
