Oh my geeze!!! Ok, so I have been sick for 2 weeks now, just thought I had a cold until I went to the doc and he said I had a little pnemonia, well up until then I had no ear pain or stopped up issues, he looked in my ear with that stupid light thing and BAM the next day... ear infection!! And I do not tolerate them very well at all. The last 2 I had put me in the hospital because the infection got so bad and the pain was worse than any I have even felt!! So this time when it came on I wanted to find some way to relieve it before it got to that point... So I came upon this site and I have to say THANKS to whomever posted about putting a wet washcloth in a mug and microwaving it (I used hot water to wet the cloth and put a little in the mug and microwaved for 30 sec, and after the heat was gone I repeated the process before letting it drain), then hold it to your ear and let the steam in the ear, then after a few minutes I took away the cup and let my ear drain... HOLY COW!! It feels soooo much better. I read lots of other things that sound like good ideas, but I do not put things in my ear, I just cant do it, the thought of having to relive that pain from the monster ear infections gets me and I will not take that chance, I know there are many who can relate or just do like to put things in their body like that, so here is one that works!!! Good luck to all!!
