is some anecdotal evidence for
reducing ear infections.
One young mother's children were getting reoccurring ear infections. At the suggestion of her chiropractor, after a bath, shower or swim, she would place a tissue over her finger and then at the entrance of the Ear (external auditory meatus) tipping the child's head downward as to help the drainage. Doing this once for each ear minimized the pooling of water in the external cannel and thus minimized the chance to foster a bacterial infection. And this was enough to prevent any ear infections thus far.
