Question
Posted : July 11, 2006
Family of five, four divers, someone always gets an ear infection on holdiay - all four last year in Maldives, possibly due to high level of plankton - GP has suggested one drop of olive oil in each ear, every morning, as a preventative measure - would you agree, and if not any suggestions?
