    Are probiotics good for keeping ear infections away?
    Anon_77389 posted:
    My 4 year old granddaughter had tubes put in her ears twice last year because she had continual ear infections. She now has a double ear infection and the tube in her left ear is out. She does not handle the surgery well and my sister-in-law said her family takes probiotics and her son no longer has to take anything for his asthma and the entire family has not had a cold this season. She recommended trying probiotics and see if it will help with her ear infections. My daughter is a nurse and she is reluctant to trythis, but I see no harm in trying it. Has anyone tried probiotics for ear infections?
