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've had an ear ache for several days (probably from swimming a lot). I used some dilute hydrogen peroxide the other day and that seemed to clear the hearing a little, but every time I rinse and dry my ear, I tend to irritate it some. Anyway, I tried the lemon juice and can't say I noticed much difference. Maybe ease a little aching, but I haven't noticed much a day later. I'll try it again though.

I've had a bad ear infection for almost two weeks now, and have been on amoxicliin for one of those weeks, very little has changed. The only relief I could find is in taking ibproufen every 6-8 hours. Afraid of any side effects, I started to alternate between ibproufen and tyenol, but the tyenol wasn't helping. This morning, I tried the lemon juice, and at least for now, most of the pain is gone, I was so happy, now I can go back to sleep!

When I was growing up my step-mom would have me hold a half a lemon to my ear if I got an ear infection. So when I saw this rememdy, I thought Id give it a try, since my ear was in constant pain and generally very annoying.
I squeezed a few drops into my ear from a real lemon. At first it was uncomfortable (As all fluid is) and then when I washed it out it seemed to hurt a little more, and in particular, the side back of my throat was hurting. I washed out the sticky lemon with a few drops of water and it seemed to dull the pain to almost nothing after a few minutes. My ear still felt a little sore but NOTHING like it had been. During the day I felt the pain growing, but still NOTHING like it had been. Last night I squeezed a couple more drops in, and it seemed to work. This morning I woke up with no problems. We'll see if it lasts the day. Amazing, because I thought I'd have to use anti-biotics! BTW I use warm baby oil on a cotton swab to ease the pain, I wore it after I applied the lemon both times because as I said the lemon was uncomfortable. It eases the pain a lot and is cheap.

Thanks so much. my 13 yr old son was in terrible pain from an ear ache. we put in the lemon juice (from a fresh lemon) let it sit for about 2 minutes and then repeated it again about a half hour later and the pain is about 80 percent better. good enough for him to get some sleep for school tomorrow. we will do it again in the morning. thank you thank you thank you

I have yet to see results as I just did this 10 minutes ago but OH MY GOD IT WAS THE WORST PAIN I HAVE FELT IN MY EAR EVER IN MY LIFE when i put the 3 drops of room-temp fresh lemon juice (actually from a lemon). I was screaming in pain for like the whole time and only now has it slowed to a dull roar. I'd bet that I have that perforated eardrum that an earlier poster was talking about. OUCH!!! I hope this didn't just make things worse!
