120 Comments for the Ear Infections and Aches Home Remedy


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 have a really bad ear infection and I'm in a lot of pain. My friend told me about the lemon juice. So I just tried it & it really works ~THANKS MARIA ~ Wow !!! My pain in now gone!!!


i tried this remedy when i had a terrible earache and i have never felt
this much pain before in my life. it
was a terrible feeling. i would never
try this remedy again. it did not work
for me, it just made my pain worse.


That worked like a charm!!!!!!Thank you!!


i just put 2 drops of lemon juice, and it didn't help me. my ear is killing me stilllllllllllllllllllll


wow so i get chronic ear infections and never know what to do. i tried this because hey, what else is there to do? sit in pain? well i put two drops in [of Real Lemon juice that comes in the little lemon-shaped bottle] and let it soak for about a minute and it works very well. still about 5% of the pain left, but it a dull pain and is much better than how i started. thanks so much!


tryed the limon juice on my wife after reading this she shortly fell asleep once shr woke up about an hour or 2 laater no more pain she felt alot better than you alot to everyone who repled as well.


Well it wasn't as good as I was hoping but it helped alot. I could feel the tingling in my ear as the lemon juice reactied with the bacteria it stung a little bit. However, most of the soreness is gone. I can still fine a little of the tingling in my ear and it is stopped up but it does feel a lot better. Thank you very much for the information.


this worked very 2 1/2 got up ffom her nap complaining of a sore ear...with a few drops she was fine......side note, i was so flustered i didnt think how it would feel to have fridge temp. lemon juice dropped into a burning ear.....ouchy! the lemon juice should be room temp.

This remedy seems to have alleviated the pain to a high degree. I used the juice of an actual lemon (as opposed to RealLemon, which is from concentrate and has some manner of preservatives that I didn't really want in my ear). I can still feel some pain when I swallow, but it is diminished and seems to be getting better as time goes by; thanks!


oh my god, thank you so much for posting this. I came home from work because I could hardly hear, I can't afford to go in to the dr so i looked online and found your posting..I've done it 2 times tonight and I'll do it once again tomorrow before work..I can't believe how well something so simple as Lemon Juice worked
