My 16 year old son had a bad ear infection which he was on antibiotics for. Last night he developed severe earache where he was almost crying out with the pain, he couldn't even lie down. It was 1.30am and I had given him co-codomol and ibuprofen to no avail. I read online about using mouthwash, yes mouthwash! I dipped cotton wool in some mouthwash and gently placed it in his ear. Within ten minutes the pain had gone and he was able to lie down and sleep for the remainder of the night! Just amazing, don't know how it works (maybe the alcohol), but it worked!
