Has anyone heard of wally ear oil to prevent and help ear infections?  ent or herbal docs?

What kind? Ear oil is unlikely to prevent otitis media (middle ear infections) since the ear canal doesn't communicate with the middle ear. But, it may help with pain from a middle ear infection. For otitis externa (swimmers ear), there is no evidence to support using wally ear oil as prevention but i can't think of a reason why a drop in each ear once a week during swimming season would be harmful.

He/She may be able to recommend something to relieve the pressure or improve drainage. Read more...
