I found this as a home remedy but altered it last night (easier) and worked wonders! First, the person said cook salt until brown, put in cloth and hold to ear (blocking out air with salt in towel over ear opening). Careful! Salt is very hot! Well, I cooked salt, set off smoke alarm and it never turned brown but that worked better than percocet! Well, last night woke up in pain again and took the same washcloth with 4 tbsp. salt in it, put about a tbsp of water on outside of cloth where salt was and microwaved for a minute. Put it to my ear opening for a minute (allowing 'vapors or whatever was helping' to permeate into the ear). I went back to sleep and pain free for 9 hrs. This one's a bad one-- worse than I've had in years, which I used to treat with percocet and antibiotics. But, this salt thing is a miracle! Nothing in the ear means no harm and nothing but relief. Try it!

what should i do like 4days ago i was cleaning my ear and blue stuff was coming out and now the last 2 days ive had a BAD earache in the same ear plz help


I was having terrible ear pain for the last 3 days, and tried the microwave method described above. The relief was very fast, and it has been 2 hours so far. Thank you!

My granddaughter just woke up with a horrible ear ache, it is 1:40 a.m. and I didn't know what to do to help her.
I looked up 'home remedy's for an ear ache' and found this one. (I read a few others but with this 1, I had all the ingredients needed at the ready) HEATED SALT in a CLOTH that I tied off with a hair tie!!
I am telling you, it was MINUTES, definitely less than 10, and the pain was gone. I heated another, just for good measure and sent her back to bed with it but she was already pain free of the ear ache. Thank you SO VERY much for sharing!!


I tried this (was skeptical cause it sounded to easy) I won't say that the pain is completely gone, but it is a lot better! I had been using rubbing alcohol soaked on a cotton ball, with very little ear is still stopped up but the pain is less!


Omg why didn't I google this earlier??? Been suffering all day. Salt. Washcloth. Water. Microwave. Pain relief! Thank youuuuuuu! Now I can go to bed.


salt has iodine which is a killer.

soo thankful for this my 2 and a half year old has an ear infection and told me her ear hurt her really bad......and tried it and it worked....just glad i didn't have to put anything in her ear :)


My ear has been throbbing for 24 hours. I have been taking iBprophen every 4 hours for relief!! But the pain kept coming back. I googled and found this method. Within one minute the pain has gone. Much quicker than pills. I will take note how long it stays away! So far it's worked a miracle!!


I woke up with my ear almost swollen shit from an infection. I tried this salt method and ill tell you it works great. I did this in the morning, noon, and evening and my ears feel much, much, better. Great home rememdy.


I tried this, and it does work. The salt kind of got hard so I had to break it up, but, it helped take away much of the pain. Although, it does not stay warm for very long, it might be something that has to be repeated several times a day to help relieve pain. Thanks for the tip!
