    If you have got an ear infection it wont go without antibiotics hun, so get down the doctors so they can have a look. xx

    You may be lucky enough for it to go through herbel medicine etc or just leave it but i cant see it clearing up completely if it is an infection.

    They are very painful so take plenty of painkillers if you dont want to see a doctor. I know which option i would go with but its your choice hun. xx

    Please go to the doctors one of the complications of a non treated ear infection is Meningitis!

    My husband had an inner ear infection that took 6 weeks to clear up even with anti biotics. It made him very very ill as he refused to go to the doctor at first.

    even if i go to the doctors i wont take any medication they give me anyway. for personal reasons. i was just hoping that there might be an alternative i could try, its better then it was yesterday so im hoping its going on its own, i just dont like not being able to hear properly all the time. lol. If theres nothing i can try ill just leave it to go on its own. im sure it will be fine, i didnt take nothing when i had tonsilitus (spelling??) and that went away after a few weeks.
