I have a 18mo old son and he has an inner ear infection. Try this remedy, it worked for my son to relieve some of his discomfort. Heat a coffee mug's worth of water for 45 seconds, steep a green tea bag in it. Get a diaper (they are after all soft and absorbent) pour the tea into the diaper and then fold it up securing it with the velcro patches. Put 2 drops of Olive Oil into your child's infected ear (or both if it's a double). While the diaper is warm have your child lay the painful side down onto it. Do this for about 10 minutes if possible. CAUTION: Make sure it's Warm, not HOT!! Easiest part is you can just throw it away when you're done and there's no mess! Ibuprofin or Tylenol will help too, but in the meantime while you're waiting for it to kick in try this! Good Luck!!!
