8 Comments for the Ear Infections and Aches Home Remedy

Alicia

My son had a pretty bad ear infection that developed, it seems, over night. He was crying and kept waking up screaming. My husband had gotten some over the counter earache drops from the drugstore, but that did not seem to be doing the job good enough.

After reading some posts and ideas, I did a few things. scraped/finely chopped and boiled an onion with 50% water/50% vinegar until the onion was see through. Then I separated the liquid from the onion. I placed the warm (not hot) onion on his ear (not in) then, when the liquid has cooled to warm, i filled his ear canal. I let it sit for about 2 minutes, had him dump it out, then put 2 small drops and put a cotton ball so it would not drip out. he was tear free within the 2 minute time. I do this 3 times a day with obvious infection and 1 time a day for a week after just to make sure it does not return. After the first 24 hours, you can use a weak peroxide mix (dilute with water) to break up any hardened puss. anything in there will be forced to float to the top.

Hospital visit avoided...5 year old sleeping through the night...happy parents!

We were stuck in the house, snowed in today in Dallas. My six year old was crying uncontrollably and writing with pain from her ear ache. Helpless, I logged on and found this remedy.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you soooo much for posting this! It worked in the two minutes as you indicated, and she is now sound asleep.
You guys were a God send!

Sincerely,
Thankful in Snowy Dallas

I Had A Ear Infection For 3 Days Now. The Nurse Told Me To Heat Up A Warm Rag In The Microwave Until It Gets Real Hot. It Actually Works. After That Take Some Aldvil Or Aleive To Soothe The Pain. It Will Eventually Go Away

i was skeptical at first, but thank you so much! this method most definitely works in under 5 minutes. my 4 year old son was wailing in pain while i made up the solution. i used a cheese shredder to grate the (yellow) onion put that (about 1 tbsp of onion pulp)in a small pan with 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, 2 tbsp of water and boiled until onion was clear. ran it through a sieve/strainer, let the liquid cool and put it in his ear for about 2 minutes and drained. he was fine 2 minutes later. again, thank you so much!

I just tried this remedy for my severely painful ear infection. To my surprise it worked very well immediately. I have a 75% decrease in pain. I preceded the treatment with holding a warm cloth on my ear and using the galbreath technique described in the prior post. I expect I will need to repeat the treatment later today and am contemplating adding finely sliced garlic to the brew. Thank you very much for this remedy!!! Safe, fast acting, and easy.
