Vinegar has always been tried and true for ear problems, but you definitely shouldn't put it in undiluted. Use 2 parts saline water to each part vinegar. And if you live near the ocean, substitute ocean water for saline water.

Then dab onto a q-tip/cottonswab and apply gently. For babies and kids use an ear bulb to pour a few drops in. Hold the head tilted for a minute, then tip out.

This advice is right on. I had a prescription for Cipro which was suspended in a vinegar based liquid and ws most effective. The 2-1 mix suggested is just right it will burn any open wound you have but really just a quick 1 or 2 seconds so nothing to cry over. Even works on the related outer ear infection. Save your money and try this first!!

In addition i would add an anti-inflammitoryn regimen of aleve or motrin dependin on which worksnfor you in concert with the vinegar brew.

Please do not use ocean water. Saline water, or make your own with purified ocean salt. Our oceans are not clean - bacteria, chemicals, oil and waste are floating around. The only ocean water that is pure is the dead sea in Israel.

This worked instantly on my four year old daughter. After I poured the mixture of vinegar an steril saline into her ear, in less then a minute, she said, 'mommy you saved my life' lol. She is no longer in pain!!!!

This doesn't work for an inner or middle ear infection. I tried it and it made it worse. At this point I'll try anything.
