Does anyone know if there is anything i can do to help my little boy feel better besides just giving him the antibiotic? He has a really bad ear infection and rsv.

My two boys just were diagnosed with an ear infection yesterday. The doctor said that the antibiotics would take 48 hours to stop the pain, but that you can give them numbing drops to help dull the pain. It pretty much works like Orajel does for their teeth. It made a HUGE difference for my little guy. Good luck!

This sounds weird, but cutting up an onion and place some of it in cheese cloth and place it on is ears. Put a hat on him to keep it place. It is a homeopathic remedy that I laughed at...until I used it!

putting a pillow under the mattress where his head lies (helped my daughter) I always gave her the antibiotics because i didnt want it to turn into anything further or get worse. All I know is putting the pillow under the mattress helped with her.
