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!

oh my gosh!! this works instantly. it hurt really bad for about 5 seconds then instant relief!


Thank-you so much my son was screaming with pain I tried everything including the garlic, ear drops, smoke, blow dryer, then i thought of looking here and found you..after a long haul he is giggling and saying thank you so much Mom I feel so much better. Lemon juice who would have thought? ;)


I started feeling an ear infection coming on earlier 6 oclock it was becoming pretty unbearable. i got some over the counter drops that didn't seem to do a thing. I just tried the lemon juice drops 5 minutes ago, and I feel significantly better. The sting is pretty harsh, probably due to irritation, but it's worth it.


Thank you!!! Worked wonders......My daughter screamed all night, I had no sleep until I used this! We have used many others including drops bought from store and garlic drops....They did not work.


My 11/2yr old son had a fever and kept pulling on his ear saying ouch around 6pm. I put a few drops of lemon juice into his ear last night. He slept through the night and is up playing as if he never hurt. It really worked!!!!! :)

Our son complained that his ear hurt before he went to bed. We touched behind it and he said that part didnt hurt so we werent thinking ear infection right away. We though he just wanted to get out of going to bed. Well he woke up 2 hours later crying saying his ear hurt. We gave him tylenol and put a warm compress on his ear. He was able to fall asleep in our lap but as soon as I put him in his bed he woke up and started crying saying his ear hurt again.

My wife then read this site and heard about lemon juice. We warmed it in the mirowave for a few seconds and then put 3 drops in his ear. We let it sit for about a minute and then let it drain as we did his other side. Pain was gone by the time we were done. He said his ears didnt hurt anymore so we took him t his bed. Not sure how long this will last so we have some more lemon juice ready by our bedside.


My husband had a very bad ear ache and I jumped online to find a quick fix since it was so late and all the stores were closed. I found this one and I had the lemon juice on hand and figured we would try it. IT WORKED INSTANTLY!!! Thank you so very much for this great fix!!


idk whats wrong with me!!! i tried it.. and its not working!! maybe its something else thats wrong with me.. so thank you anyways!! : ) i appreciate it!


Well, my ear started hurting pretty bad and after two and 1/2 weeks of just dealing with the pain and saving $$$ for the doctor (young, dumb, and uninsured), i found this suggestion. HOLY HECK i saved alot of money by just doing this and not going to the doctor. After the first night, all pain was virtually gone. I was at the point where i had terrible smelling drainage from the ear before doing this. Day 3 now and my hearing is fully restored (used to be kinda fuzzy sounding in the mornings) and 0 pain. I have used lemon juice once in the morning and once at night for the 3 days. Swelling has almost completely disappeared (forgot to mention i've also been taking ibuprofen). Also, the wax causing the blockage (I assume) is now pushing itself completely out of my ear and is virtually gone. Unreal to know the cure cost $2 and could be found in the refrigerator. THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!
