adult ear infectionHi. Both my ears are infected after a scuba diving trip the week before last. My doctor prescribed the five-dose Z-Pak. Today will be my fifth dose. I'm not sure how my infection is coming along, but I'm still having a really hard time hearing, especially in my left ear. It's awful. Does anyone know about know long it takes to beat an infection like this and return to normal? I figured I'd be in better shape by now.

Not sure what a Z Pak is but suspect it is an antibiotic . There are a number of reasons that it may not be effective.
If you have a sweet tooth and a fear of exams . flying etc
You could try Argebtum Nitrate 6x twice a day for a week.

PSORINUM 30C would do a great deal for you IF the Argentuum Nitrate does not. Passkey is knowledgable and I would not butt in except for my own past ear problems. I was a life guard, and raised on the ocean. "Swimmers ear" with pressure is really hard to deal with. It wasn't until I was an adult and used homeopathy, the ear conditions disappeared.
The thing about Psorinum is that mostimes only one dose works. This remedy should not be given any more than 7 days apart. One only takes once in 7 days.
Another remedy I would mention is APIS M. This is not called for with you, but info for you.
If a child or adult complains of sudden earache in airplane or mountians, down or up, this calls for a dose of Apis. The inner ear sometimes swells in these situations and this is probably why babies cry on airplanes.
If your pressure was only that with no infection, Apis would have helped quickly.
The swimmers ear condition is hard to stay rid of. If you like to scuba. Keep the remedy with you. Also one must place some alcohol in the ears after swimming, and turn head to let it drain out. The alcohol will help the ear dry rapidly and avoid a lot of problems. Don't dig, let the alcohol do it for you.
