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!

My 8 yr old son was up all night crying about his left ear. I found this site, grabbed the yellow bottle of lemon juice, put it in a dropper and my son said he totally felt better and laughed!!!!! It took about a minute! Also I warmed it up first by putting it in a small cup and sitting it in hot water, only a minute. Good luck!!

Having searched the internet for various ear infection remedies and preventatives, I felt I should pass on this piece of information; the advice is that you should be careful about getting any fluid into an infected ear, in case the ear drum is perforated and the pain is made worse (especially by the introduction of lemon juice).

Having just taken my 1 1/2 year old to the doctor again and had his ears checked out this morning, I did try the lemon juice. We only managed to treat one ear because it iritated his ear so much he got into a real state, and I was very sorry for adding even more discomfort to that which he was already in.

I tried this remedy today, and I was surprised it worked. A word of caution: I used a fresh lemon, but it was cold and upon putting the juice in my ear, I could feel the cold sensation in my throat. When I let the juice drain out my ear, I felt dizzy and nauseated. I think it was due to the fact the lemon was refrigerated (LOL).

My boyfriend has experienced chronic ear infections for about 20 years now. He is all about holistic healing, so I searched natural remedies for ear infections. That is when I found this website. We got very excited and decided to run out to the store, and buy some lemons. I followed the instructions and applied 3 drops of, room temperature, lemon juice. He left it in his ear for about 5-7 seconds, and then let it drain. Unfortunately, he did not experience any difference with his ear ache. We are hoping to see results tomorrow morning. Thank you for the experience. Good luck to everyone else!

I tried this twice b/c of all of the positive comments. Unfortunately, for me it has not worked as well. The pain is gone from my jaw, but I believe that is due to the ibuprofen I took. I am so sad! This really hurts!
