Does it? I've had problems with my ear for over a year and it all started after a virus!
Also previously had issues with warts. Is it possible your virus based things do not get defeated by a person with Celiac who has a repressed immune system,?

I don't have any good answers but I have major problems myself trying to overcome every virus and cold bug that comes my way. It seems to go away for everyone else in a few days. For me it takes a week or more.

Hoping you feel better. Soon!

For your ear you might want to try a drop of lavender essential oil in a tablespoon of olive oil. Drip it into your ear and plug it overnight with cotton or a piece of flannel. I find that really helps with ear eaches that get out of control.
Lavender is naturally antiviral and is great for all sorts of healthy benefits, burns and such.

Hope that helps. :D

Viruses are tough. But we would all be very sick all the time if our bodies couldn't defeat them. There are viruses all around. And not just in our ears, they would spread. I am sorry you are still having trouble with your ears. Are you off dairy and gluten now? Staying off the things that make you sick is important if you want to get better. I don't remember if you had a dairy problem, but you might try avoiding it awhile and see if it helps.

I have had warts on my feet for a long time and am gluten sensitive. Plantar warts are a pain. A lot of people who are sensitive seem to get odd viruses that won't go away more frequently. Very interesting.
