My computer screen is dying. So here is the best I can do as I cannot see ...
A HUGE thanks to several individuals who really took the time to help me out with my little guy. After reading all of our different suggestions, here is what I decided to try:
Prevention: Daily gluten free multivitamin, daily 1/4 tsp of cod liver oil, windows shut and fan on during allergy season, ( we ruled out dust and dog allergies) 2 tablets of Dadamo's A probiotic, healthy diet for an A non secretor of course
Treatment: At the first sign of a cold, emergence C vitmain packet for kids with a 500 mg extra dose of Vitmain C, 4 tsps of Sambuco (spelling) syrup (elderberry mainly) spread out throughout the day, hylands cold tablets for congestion as needed (extra zinc) and lots of sleep and no daycare whatsoever.
At the first sign of an actual ear infection: (coughing or doctor's visit), hylands earchae drops as needed, hylands earache tablets, watchful waiting (giving it 48 hours to see if ear infections can go away on there own), no tylenol for fever except in cases of extreme sleep deprivation, cool mist vaporizer for easier breathing and frequent cleaning in order to prevent mold, homemade turkey veggie broth as often as he will drink it, and all of the above.
If the earache drops (hyland) do not seem to cut it, there were several other suggestions given to me that i would be moe than willing to try. Also, I reallky hope that we don't get ot the tpoint of his eardrum actually popping. Even the instrucitons on the hyland's label states that if it doesn't work within two days, to try soemthing else. And please don't misunderstand, I amnot against doctovr's visits to diagnose what is wrong. But I really think at this point, it has been prven that antibiotics do not work for him longer term and barely work for him short term.
My computer screen has literally gone dark. I will try and submit that piece of junk, and then hoepfully get my screen fixed. Until then.....
