Ear Infections and Aches Home Remedy Comments

4 Comments for the Ear Infections and Aches Home Remedy


I'm only 19 and have suffered about 17 inner ear infections in my lifetime. When I was little my parents would heat up a potato in the microwave, wrap it in foil and then wrap it in a cloth or a sock. It stays warm much longer than a rice heating pad, and feels wonderful on an infected ear. To this day I still use the 'sock potato' method over ear drops. I have found that over-the-counter ear drops can make an infection worse if you get them for an earache without knowing you have an infection.

This got my son back to sleep after waking up crying in pain. Thanks! Worked for him.


After using many different ear drops I tried this and I felt the relief instantly. Definitely going to continue using this method with myself and children

sitting here now with a potato to my ear, the pain is already going away. thanks!
