It is likely a placebo, as colds are viruses, not bacteria. Viruses do not operate as bacteria do, and there is no reason why a cold virus would be in your ear. It might be useful against an ear infection. Unless you have an open wound, the... (more)

Whatever you do, do take a lot of fermented vegetables (or fresh yogurt), to replenish bacteria that those pills are going to kill. Also consider taking probiotic capsules for extra dose of bacteria. This will help you recover faster.
