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

I had an ear infection in my lest ear but it didn't hurt nearly as bad as now my right. I have an autistic child and am a single mother who has no time to get to the hospital unless on her death bed much less able to make time for appointed Dr visits. so i was hopeful. That though is until I realized how bare my cubard actually was from any of the incredients that were sugested that I was willing to try.

Thankfully I did have Rice, a few of my ex husbands odd socks in my dresser and a half empty bottle of Eleve. So of course I quickly gave your sock theory a try. Here it has been atleast 5 minutes and the pain has certainly lessoned.

I'm curious though, is it possible to use the same sock of rice over and over for the same ear ache? Because luck would have it, I only have one cup of rice in my house.

P.S. I do agree, though about the rice getting a little to hot I think 35 seconds works best.


Thank you for jogging my memory of this. We used it many times growing up for multiple maladies and it comes through everytime! I just forgot about the simplest treatment in the world when my six year was up all night with an earache! Thank you!


My three year old suffered. Just a few short mintues later- he was feeling well enough to eat- and later, well enough to frog leap onto my husband- thanks for putting the spring back into him.


I realy fell much better and who ever came out with this remedy is awsome thank you


Thanks for the idea. My 7yr. old daughter feels so much better; until we can get to the doctor tomorrow. She was actually weeping and in pain.


It worked like a charm!!! it was my saving grace!


My 5 year old has been crying about his ear hurting and when I put the rice sock on it, he was asleep within 5 minutes. I can't believe I didn't know about this during the last 5 years! Thanks!


My 18 yr old daughter was in such pain went to the dr. and was diagnosed an ear infection in the left ear. Now tonight, her right ear is in such tremendous pain. I just heated up a sock full of ricearoni, i didnt have normal rice, now she is not in tears anymore and is getting relief....Thanks i am so Glad!


my 13 yr old son has a head cold and woke up with a bad ear ache, he couldn't go back to sleep it hurt so bad, tried this remedy and it worked, he was able to go back to sleep and woke up the next day without the ear ache. Thanks. :)


Pretty weird, but effective. It works like a heated beanbag. Really did make me feel better.
