Can an ear infection give you diarrhea? I have been using antibiotic ear spray but haven't taken anything orally

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Unlikely

Oral antibiotics could give you diarrhea, but an antibiotic applied directly to the ear shouldn't.
Otherwise and ear infection should not give you gastrointestinal symptoms.
