For those who want to try ear candles, get two of them. Burn one in the ear and burn one without it in the ear. Cut them open after the burn. When I did this the inside looked the same in both

I get chronic ear infections thanks to having 4 sets of tubes when I was younger that never worked. My grandmother always did the same thing for me all through my childhood until she passed and it always worked, for me AND my siblings. 50/50 mix of peroxide and white vinegar, let it sit in your ear for about 5 minutes, then put hot water into a disposable diaper(weird I know) and microwave it for 30-45 seconds or until it's hot but won't burn you, and place that on your ear. It keeps the water warm for a long time, and is able to be microwaved numerous times. I actually just did this and the pain is already gone. Hope this helps someone!

witch hazel 16ounce[don't use isopropyl alcohol as it STINGS AND witch hazel same thing, 4 tespoons boric acid, 16 drops gentian violet [1% USP]the normal bottle should have eye dropper. Reduce amounts easily divided - much smaller amounts, but will keep in fridge but don't use cold if possible. GETS RID OF CAT YEAST INFECTION. BEST SEVERAL TIMES A DAY OR AT LEAST ONCE A DAY FOR ABOUT 3-4 DAYS SHOULD DO IT. WILL COME BACK IF NOT ORIGINAL APPLICATIONS KEPT. Pet store remedies don't always work and are HUGE COST. Save money -very effective and you can use and use and use.BEWARE, THE BORIC ACID I SEE IS POISONOUS BUT JUST WIPE THE EARS. AVOID GETTING INSIDE OF EARS WET!! This makes the yeast grow like wild! took me over a year to find this one rec. by VET online search - so save. Note- I saw garlic is good for candida[human]. GUESS WHAT? I tried this on my cat's ears and in 1 day her ears were becoming wild with burning yeast! Cost: $18. Will have forever years and never have to buy again but may want to renew the gentian violet. My gentian violet still good after a couple of years.

I've read about all kinds of suggestions to stop the pain, but so far, this has worked the best. Put 4 tablespoons of salt into a wash cloth, and tie closed. Wet the outside of the cloth with about 1 tablespoon of water, and put it into the microwave for about a minute. Put the salt pouch on your ear, covering the opening to your ear canal. But BE VERY CAREFUL!! The first time I did this, I used an old cloth. I reheated it once it cooled off, and put it back on my ear. The old cloth was actually smouldering and I didn't notice. I pulled it off my ear just before it caught fire. So it works, just BE SMARTER than I was!!!!

THIS REMEDY WILL CURE EAR ENFECTIONS WITHIN MINUTES!- this is the best remedy I learned from my parents.All you need is an onion.take a small ring of onion and cut a small piece enough to fit in your ear.I know it sounds gross but it works.Heat the small piece of onion on your stove top till its warm.You don't want it too hot either.place the warm piece of onion in your ear till its just touching the rim of your ear.immediatley you will hear your ear make a pop sound and you'll notice your ear open up be able to hear again. Keep The onion there for about 5 to 10 minutes. Within the time you feel no more pain and feel as if you didn't have an infection at all. It has always worked for me and I'm sure it will work for you.

my ear has been aching since morning today and its probably due to the cold ive had for the past week and ive looked up on different health websites such as nhs (uk) and it says that for the first day or two just take painkillers every 4-5 hours like paracetamol or ibruprofen )dont give children under the age of 16 aspirin) to relieve the pain. it also stated that keeping a hot flannel against the ear helps reduce pain too - im using ahot water bottle (in a cover ofcourse) at the moment and it really helps. be careful as it is hot. check your country's health organisation website - (eg the NHS in the uk) you can check your symptoms and if it can be treated at home .
