A 48-year-old female developed itching in her ears and was diagnosed with fungal otitis externa 4 years ago and got relief with antibiotics and anti-fungal ear-drops. It recurred 2 years ago and got settled with similar treatment. Again itching started 3 weeks ago; this time she got only partial relief with allopathic medicine and ear-drops.
So she stopped taking the oral allopathic medicine and on 20 January 2019, visited the practitioner who gave the following remedy:
#1. CC5.1 Ear infections + CC12.1 Adult tonic + CC21.7 Fungus…one dose every 10 minutes for one hour followed by 6TD
During the first hour, she did not feel any itching and later in the day, it was mild only. The next day, encouraged by the results, she stopped the allopathic ear drops too and the practitioner made vibro drops instead:
#2. CC5.1 Ear infections + CC21.7 Fungus…TDS in extra virgin olive oil, 1 drop in each ear
Although initially hesitant to put oil as ear drops, she agreed to try it. The very next day she reported 90% improvement in itching. On the third day 23 Jan 19, there was no itching. Dosage of #1 was reduced to TDS. On 15 February, dosage of both #1 and #2 were reduced to OD. On 1 March 2019, the ENT doctor found that her ear canal was healthy with no trace of fungal infection. So #2 was stopped after 2 weeks and #1 was gradually tapered down from OD to OW over a period of 3 weeks. As of April 2019, there has been no recurrence but she continues #1 at OW.
