Most often an ailment of infants and young children, earache signifies an Infection of the middle ear. The outer ear may become infected as well, especially from swimming in a lake or pool.
Infants and young children have been suffering middle-ear Infections in ever-increasing numbers in recent years. Up to one third of all children under the age of six, experience recurrent Infections. Often this indicates allergies, usually to dairy foods, although other common food sensitivities may be involved.

This Painful complaint can respond well and rapidly to a well chosen homoeopathic medicine.
