I saw some remedies about blowing tobacco smoke into children's ears to relieve the pain. You can get the same effect by using any heat source: hot water bottle wrapped in a towel, heating pad, put rice in a cotton sock-tie the end-microwave for up to 1 minute. The heat is what relieves the pain. Use something appropriate to the age of the child. This is a much better method than exposing your kids to tobacco smoke at that close of a range.

Hasn't it been determined that most earaches in children are from overexposure to secondhand smoke??????

I can't believe in this day and age someone would even consider this 'treatment'.

Thanks for the rice in the sock idea. I have a big rice pad for the microwave I use on my back and neck and I love it. I never thought to put some in a sock to use for smaller areas. Going to go get a sock and make one right now for my ear.
