I am Sam's super infected ears

Poor little man can't catch a break! After spending 1 am - 5 am not sleeping and in pain all weekend, Chad took him back to the Dr this morning. We are to stop the oral antibiotic as he is now on a treatment of shots - poor baby! He got them today and we go back wed and fri. If this doesn't work, we are off to the ENT.

I am looking for feedback on the following, so please leave a comment or email me if you have any experience with:
Antibiotic Shots - side effects, effectiveness after oral antibiotics have failed
Chiropractic treatment for ear infections
Garlic oil in the ear to relieve pain

Thanks for any help you have to offer. I never thought that Sam could possibly have WORSE ear infection problems than Gavin. Our ped said Gavin set the record on frequency. Maybe Sam gets to set the record on difficulty of treatment. That's an award I will gladly avoid if possible!

I used to suffer terrible earaches when I was little. Mom used to put warm olive oil in my ear which helped. However, I would not attempt that without Sam's doctor's approval.

I would think that the antibiotic shots should work better than the oral med since the shots go directly into the blood stream.
