7 year old woke up crying in the middle of the night complaining of ear pain....I started w/heating pad on affected ear & Tylenol, followed by 2 crushed garlic cloves in olive oil heated in micro for 45 sec & waited till cool. I dipped a cotton ball in & held ear open, then let 2/3 drops fall in. Instant relief! Put clean cotton ball in the ear & back to bed :)
I'm telling you, garlic does it all!
My mom used to put alcohol on a cotton ball & then put the cotton ball in my ear. She said it helped to drawout/dryout the ear. But I'm not sure that is such a good idea after reading other entries.
