take a clean long sock, most likely a mens sock, put about a cup of rice in the sock and heat it in the microwave for about a min. then put it on the ear that is hurting and take some pain med. not only does this take away the pressure causing the pain but if you do this often enough it will drain the build up in your ear

This is the best and oldest home remedy I know of. My mother and grandmother have both done this for as long as I can remember. Thanks for reminding me about it! I would recommend that everyone try it even for stress in the neck.

I used a herbal pack that I heated in the microwave. Then laid down and placed it on my ear. The pain in my ear soon lessened and I was not walking around screaming 'ouch: everytime I hiccuped. This also helped me get to sleep. This is good temporary relief.

Worked for me too, one Ibuprofen and the sock for 15 min, and it feels amazing! Thnx!

(Was a bit too warm in the beginning, so I wrapped it in a towel which I could unwrap as as the sock got colder)

I must say I was skeptical, but hearing my 5 year old crying because it hurt when she hiccuped I decided what the f' I'll try it!!! Although my daughter thought it would hurt her I convinced her to try it, and now she's calling everyone saying mommy fixed my ear!!! Thanks for the advise and making her smile again!!!!

Roommate woke up with tears in his eyes complaining about an eyeache. I used the warm sock and rice remedy. It seemed to help the pain. Within 30 min, he was feeling much better. Was able to go back to sleep.

I used this all the time for backaches when I was pregnant, but never thought of using it for an earache! Thanks so much, my poor 4 year old is finally asleep!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

i heated the sock for just 30 seconds and the temp was just right. I was in pretty bad paid, I'd say about a 6, came on very fast. (I currently have tonsilitis and just started a z pack today so it should help the ear infection too) It's already starting to ease the pain and i've only had it on for about a minute. Thanks!
