There's a book written by a few doctors with experience with natural antibiotics. It is called "Beyond Antibiotics" (Subtitled: Healthier Options for Families: 50 (or so) Ways To Boost Immunity and Avoid Antibiotics). I haven't read the book in years, but I remember I liked it when I read it and needed it. You may be able to pick it up at a bookstore. Otherwise, books by Pediatrician Doris Rapp may have good suggestions as well. Sorry I can't give an immediate suggestion. Good luck!
