Ear infections are a common ailment that most people will experience at least once in their lifetime.
However, while anyone can get an ear infection, children are impacted far more frequently by this common ailment, with an estimated five out of six children experiencing at least one ear infection before their third birthday. Today, ear infections are the most common reason children see a pediatrician.
You can take steps to help prevent your child from getting an ear infection, including cleaning your child's ears with a natural ear cleaning spray.
