What is Plantago drops used for?
Plantago may help with the following symptoms:
- Recurrent ear infections.
- Middle ear infections (otitis media).
- Congestion & Inflammation of the mucous membranes.
Diet is often relevant in catarrhal conditions, with white flour, sugar and dairy foods being common culprits. Plantago, through its anti-catarrhal action, helps disperse accumulated congestion. Otitis media (middle ear infection) is a very common childhood condition affecting 20% to 40% of children under six years of age. The Eustachian tube regulates pressure in, and clears fluid from, the middle ear. Obstruction of the eustachian tube leads first to the build-up of fluid and then, if bacteria start to grow, bacterial infection.
Is Plantago good for glue ear?
Glue ear is the result of chronic otitis media, and leads to hearing loss through fluid accumulation in the middle ear. Plantago's naturally occurring antibiotics may also make it a viable option for an alternative glue ear treatment.
