Do you know any home remedies for ear infection?
Simple version: I don’t have health insurance, so I’m asking for at home remedies. I have an ear infection in both ears.
Before my health insurance went up, my primary linked the ear infections to an allergic reaction I was having to a cat shelter and something about being in a plane making it worse… I volunteered at a cat shelter with 140 cats for two days before I couldn’t handle it anymore. I’ve always had short hair cats and never showed allergies but being in a shelter with so many at once overloaded my system. Shortly after the shelter work, I adopted a medium hair kitten.
My assumption is that my body just hasn’t gotten over the initial reaction because of constant exposure to my longer hair kitten. I am hoping that I am not allergic to medium hair cats. (For those who may be concerned, the symptoms aren’t bad enough for me to consider giving him up. That’s not an issue here.)
Initial symptoms were pretty bad: hard sneezing, coughing, trouble breathing. After 6 weeks, those calmed down to what I have now.
Current symptoms are just itchy eyes, ear infections, and occasional sneezing.
