    Streptococcus, on both fronts? Not a good idea.

    Well I am no doctor, but couldn't it be possible that tobacco kills straptococcus bacteria? Tobacco kills a lot of insects, and plants when they are exposed to it.
    Plus as long as the person that spits the tobacco in the other persons ear does not have strep throat, it should be OK. But I guess anyhting is possible!
    I know one thing, I wouldn't just let anybody spit in my ear, and now, I would probably use my own spit which would minimize the risk of strepto infection.

    Yes, but you provide a one time personal emperical experience as foundation. You provide no research or theoretical foundation.

    And just what does that have to do with the price of eggs in China? We aren't talking about spider mites on our houseplants neither.

    There is no scientific foundation for many old time remedy's, but some of them work. My dads family used this rememdy for years, so it is not a one time remedy.
    The next time you are hurt in the bush, be sure to get scientific proven research for any cure you may need, and good luck!

    And it's so darn easy to do. Things like Bacitracin, Neosporin and Cipro are pretty easy to tote along and work wonders. If you can get a gal to nibble on your ear, well, that's a whole 'nother thing.

    Yeah Rick, I carry that stuff too, but if you dont have your Bob, it'a a different story. I have seen remedys on here saying a certain plant will stop bleeding, and certain plants will help a fever. Do we have proven scientific research for those remedy's, probably not.
    There are a lot of remedy's that do not have scientific support, but they still work! Just ask Bear Grylls

    Bob? You don't need no stinkin' Bob. First Aid Kit. First Aid kit. Say it slowly.......Keep that stuff in your first aid kit right next to the dried Horsetail and Lambsquarter. Sheeeesh.

    I have heard about but I prefer using hydrogen peroxide for my earaches. It works great and I don't have to spit my Kodiak in my ear.

    the most common home remedy I've heard of for earache is mullein flowers steeped in olive oil. I'm fortunate for almost never having a earache so I've not tried it.

    My youngest son used to get ear infections all the time, my wife told me to roll a newspaper up stick one end in his ear and light in on fire................I said, well I can't tell you what I said on this forum, but I tried it as a last resort. I've used it on him and several others thru the years with good results.

    Roll sheet of newspaper in a cone, keeping one end small enough to fit in ear and the other end fairly large. Lay head down on flat surface, I use the kitchen table. Light the top and let it burn down. As it burns down the heat and smoke soothes the pain and soon you'll get a couple of?????? bursts? whoosh? I don't know how to explain that part but the ear pops and the escaping air causes it.

    It may sound stupid but it works. If you don't get the whoosh the first time do it again, i've never had to do it more than twice. Generally once takes care of it.

    I guess I better add......IF THE FIRE BURNS DOWN TOO LOW STOP!!!!

    I'd enjoy another remake that is worth watching, something like true grit.
