So when you cant go to a Dr what do you do for an ear infection with the ache?
Ok.I am not a doctor and I don't play one on TV.So this is just from personal experience.
My ex suffered from frequent ear infections.Her remedy was to boil it out with hydrogen peroxide.But this did little to relieve the pain and it still took days to get over it.On a visit to my relatives, my Native American Grandmother told her a treatment that she gaurenteed to work.Urine.She told her the next time it flared up to use an eye dropper and squirt some fresh, warm urine in her ear.Well you can imagine how she reacted.But pain is a great motivator and eventually some months later during an especially painful flare up she decided to try it.It worked like a charm.The pain was numbed enough to let her sleep and the next day, after a couple of more doses, it was completely gone.She had tried every kind of home and Dr. prescribed remedys and this worked better than anything else ever had.For the next dozen years that was her remedy whenever it would flare up and it would knock it right out.The recurrences even got less and less frequent.
Worked for her.
I'd like to get Phishis' thoughts on it. Any downside Phishi?
The only downside as I see it is that you've got urine in your ear .
My guess on why that may work is that you are changing the pH balance of your ear from one that is bug supportive to one that is not. Perhaps a cleaner route maybe something like vinegar? The only concern I would have would be that you may be introducing a new bug from your urine to your ear?
I'm pretty sure that no Doc is going to recomend this as a treatment, but if you think that it over rides the potential risk, who am I to stop you?
HELL! I knew about that one and had forgoten all about it. It was bad enouph today I called around and found a Dr who would bill me since I only had like $35 to my name and no insurance...the Dr looking in my ear and stateing the obvious, 'you have an ear infection' DUH!, will cost me $78 and the ear drops and antibiotics ran $30. I should have just gone to the vet and got the stuff to give my self a shot of penicilin but dont know enouph on doseing.
Phishi, do you have the info on how to determine doses for antibiotics for an IM shot?
hmm, makes sense. Piss on everything
I wonder If I can can piss and sell it for medicinal value........just a thought.
This could become a real big business.
Clyde, people are wanting quality, not quantity. Please keep that in mind.
Does sleeping around with kegs give you ear infections ?!?
There is no scientific studies found that validate the claim that sleeping with a keg can give you an ear infection.
That being said, sleeping with a keg can give you a very cold armpit, as well as a bad kink in your neck.
A final thought concerning kegs, and the optimalic condition commonly know as "beer goggles", this poor fool must have had quite a thick pair of lens on when he snuggled up with that keg.
Thank you..... Phew!
