I have to be up front and say that I am not normally a person who looks for homeopathic remedies of any sort. But a few years ago, my kids' pediatrician suggested that I might want to keep a bottle of Similasan earache drops in my house, just in case a suspected ear infection popped up and I couldn't get the kids to the doctor right away. He is a very well respected physician at one of Boston's most prestigious hospitals, so I took his suggestion and bought some during my next trip to the pharmacy. Well, it's a darn good thing I did! About a month later, my son started complaining of pain in his ear on a Sunday evening (WHY do they always get sick on the weekend?????). The pediatric office had only a nurse on call until Monday. That nurse told me to try Similasan drops until I could get my son to the doc's office the next day.
I put the recommended 3 drops in the affected ear. My son said his ear started to feel better almost immediately! The relief was enough to allow him to get a peaceful night's sleep and get to the doctor's office the next morning, where an infection was confirmed by our pediatrician.
After irrefutable proof of Similasan's effectiveness, I will ALWAYS be sure to keep these "magic" earache drops in our medicine cabinet!
