Treatment Of Ear Infections Using Garlic?
Good afternoon, can garlic be used to treat ear infections that drain pus? thank you
Garlic does have several health benefits such as good for the heart, good for the digestive tract, preventing cancer, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and preventing colds. Garlic is also believed to contain natural antibiotics but its use is not directly applied or eaten raw, a few cloves but in the form of an extract, but this needs attention because garlic can cause internal bleeding and also if in large doses can strengthen the effect of blood thinning drugs.
If the ear discharge like pus, this can be caused by ear infection or otitis which is often in the middle ear or is called otitis media. This condition can be a continuation of a respiratory tract infection that is not treated properly, the habit of picking ears, swimming, weather factors and others. To overcome this, it is necessary to first check by a doctor or ENT doctor to determine your condition and provide treatment. Most of them are caused by bacterial infections, so it is necessary to give antibiotics either by drinking or drops, avoid taking antibiotics without a doctor's prescription because they can cause allergies, resistance or can even be ototoxic or damage the ears in some antibiotic classes. In addition to administering drugs, ENT specialists can also perform actions such as cleaning or other measures needed to treat ear infections.
