Re: Natural Antibiotic for Young Child?

I would never use this to treat an active infection, I would take a prescribed antibiotic for that. But grapefruit seed extract has antibacterial properties. I've been taking it to PREVENT sinusitis. You can get it in liquid form, and mix it with juice (orange juice works well because both oranges and grapefruit are citris so the tastes blend well).

BTW I would give your son the acidophilus for a while even after stopping the antibiotic. It took me quite a while after a 2 month course of antibiotics to get my stomach in good shape again.
