My friend has been diagnosed today with an ear infection and given drops by her doctor. She says she will not take them as she believes antibiotics are bad for her, I know this is obviously incorrect but she won't listen to me! Please can anyone tell me what will happen to her if she doesn't use her antibiotics? It will either put my mind at rest or help me to convince her.
This is one recipe for disaster; apart from the pain, as the infection gets worse it will put increasing pressure on her eardrum (which could rupture). Her eustachian tube on the infected side will get blocked, leading to more pain as there will be no equalization of pressure between the inner ear and your mouth. If the infection dives deep she could end up with labarynthitis which is something like permanent motion sickness, vertigo and balance issues.
A belief in god or spiritual principles will not help. It is not a test of faith.
