For bad ear aches/infections squeeze lemon juice in your ear, keep it in for a few seconds, then let it drain out. I put a towel over my ear so it doesn't drain into my hair...that gets pretty sticky! The lemon has to do with changing the Ph levels in your ear. The bacteria is a base, and if you add the lemon, an acid, it neutralizes the Ph levels in your ear so that the bacteria cannot live in there!

I recently had a severe sinus infection followed by a cold. It all started with a stubborn sore throat, that left and came back ( nasal drip related).After two weeks of antibiotics and predinsone, i really couldn't take the pain and pressure, along with hearing loss in both of my years. The Ent prescribed Biaxin, which didn't help then he gave Levaquin,Mucinex D and this that...after 3 visits no change in my ears. I couldn't sleep w/o taking some kind pain reliever like Alieve or Tynenol...the throbbing and pain was so bad. Desperate I searched sites and found out about this lemon juice remedy. Scared at first, but thought what the heck, what's gonna happen just more pain right or not..Well, my husband got some fresh lemons and administered 2 drops in both ears. It felt like my hearing improved a tad bit and the throbbing subsided a little as well. So far so good. Going to try it tonight and tomm. Thanks for posting this remedy!


it totally works! thx :)


I am a 28 year old female. Was in severe pain and knew I had an ear infection as I've had them my whole life. Went to the doctors and sure enough she said it was pretty bad in there. Wrote me a script for an antibiotic and sent me on my way. I went to the pharmacy to get meds and the script was wrong- doctors office closed. Left there in tears and no meds.. Came to the internet for help in something to atleast sooth my pain.
I did the 3 drops of lemon juice (yellow bottle shaped like lemon) heated in microwave for 6 seconds and within 5 min the pain was gone. I am still in shock!!! Thank you for this wonderful tip...


thanks for the advice. Its really worked for me.i was suffering from pain. After applying the lemon juice the plain reduced


thanks so much..ive tried a few other home options before the lemon juice, but really it worked the best I feel so much better! thanks again for this post


Thank you so much! It worked on my little brother right away.


I have a bad case of 'Swimmer's Ear'. I tried this and the pain was HORRIBLE (yes even worse than the pain I already had). My ear feels worse. I have used the vinegar treatment many times but was hoping for Instant relief, but only got instant pain. I think if you have swimmer's ear. Don't try this. Just stick with the straight vinegar if you already have the infection, and the alcohol/vinegar mix to prevent it. Hope this helps!


This really works!! I had a bad ear ache every time i swallowed it hurt really bad i put lemon juice in my ear in the morning then again in the evening and the pain went away!!!
