Chad the Plumber

After getting over a pretty bad cold I returned to work only to slowly feel my ear throb and seemingly swell shut. I went to my doctor, who confirmed this was an ear infection. My doctor gave me Anti-biotics but did nothing for what had evolved into a ridiculous amount of pain. Once home I got on the web and tried every home remedy i could find, Hydrogen peroxide, ear candles, garlic and olive oil, everything to stop the pain. In the end the only thing that worked, and worked tremendously well was a hot rag to my ear for over a half hour. If you are reading these and just want the pain to stop, get a hot wet rag ( i nuked mine in the microwave for 10 sec over and over) and put it to your ear and keep it there for AT LEAST half an hour. Good luck!

At the suggestion of a nurse at the hospital, I did this for my son. Stopped his crying and he relaxed almost immediately.

I did give him some Motrin but that takes a bit to kick in. This remedy worked right away.

This actually worked straight away. Still got the echo-ey ear but the pain and throb have both completely gone! You sir are a genius, a god among men, a hero. :)


The hot rag worked great. My ears dont hurt anymore. I ended up using my thick towel and folding it over a few times to so I would not have to heat it up as often.


If you ever get a sty(sores on your eyelids)this treatment works for it as well.


OMG its working! I started geting a numb and deaf kinda feelin in my ear2night and a hour later full on pain.its helpin a lot I love u lool


holy shit m8 it worked but i put my rag in microwave for about 25 secs and i burned my ear :l


My boyfriend has been up all night literally CRYING, after taking the steroid/antibiotics the doctor gave him, it felt worse. This is THE ONLY thing that has helped! He is finally sleeping!
