Warm-Compress—Ear-Infections

Ear infections are usually bacterial and occur as a result of fluid that builds up in back of the eardrum. Children are most susceptible to ear infections, although people of all ages can get them. Ear infections account for more doctor visits by children than any other childhood illness. They are also the main reason pediatricians prescribe antibiotics. Statistics report that out of six kids, five will contract at least one ear infection by three years of age.
