    my ears always seem to be itching and burning, I can take antibiotics and it gets some better and then comes right back.

    Have been using peroxide on a q-tip several times a day every day for a couple of months now, it keeps it from becoming a full blown ear infection, and the swelling down,
    but would like for it to be healed of course.

    I barely make my absolutely necessary doctor app. just getting a bath some days is next to impossible and would rather not have to add another doctor to my list.

    does anyone have any answers? and does this come with either Fibro or CFS?

    You can also lie on your side and pour the hydrogen peroxide into your ear. Leave it until it stops bubbling. This would probably be more effective than putting a little in with a q-tip. I read to do it "at least once a week", so I don't think you should do it several time a day.

    You can use a solution of 1/2 hydrogen peroxide & 1/2 water for a mouthwash and gargle. Don't swallow it and rinse with water afterwards.

    I wish I did have answers to give everyone but I am just perplexed as everyone else.

    no one has told me it came with the fibro or the CFS, one doctor suggested it could be due to the jaw condition.. making my face swell etc and my ear hurt, but I didn't fully have time to discuss what I have been through with it, I will say that the peroxide does a pretty good job of keeping it tamed to anyone that could use that information.

    gmom, it sounds like you need some tupes in your ears, I am no doctor but I can't or don't know why they haven't suggested it, one of the doctors that gave me an antibiotic also said it looked like one of my ear drums had been ruptured. (I might have done that with one of my q-tips, they can be dangerous lol, if you forget you have it stuck in your ear and answer the phone) geez, I give fibro a bad name.

    Jam, the hearing loss, going death, OMG what kind of medicine was she taking, I certainly don't want to make that mistake!! and as far as I know.. I don't have a hearing problem, if the dog barks to close to me or certain noises can almost send me through the ceiling.

    P.S. Gina, hopefully this is one of them you won't get we get alot of the same problems but not always a like seems we are all different with alot of similarities, and some stick around awhile and then just leave, at one time, my family had to leave one bathroom available for me at all times because my bladder was going wild, I have no clue why but it just stopped, go figure this is the weirdest DD I have ever witnessed.
