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!

Worked for me too. Thanks


Ok, so I thoguht I would feel like an idiot with lemon juice and a turkey bastor in the bathroom but I feel better already. AWESOME !


This worked instantly!!!! So glad I found this site.


This didn't work for me yet. I'm still waiting for the pain/pressure to subside. I'm guessing that it is not an immediate reaction. I'll let you know if it is successful.


being 39 weeeks pregnant I wanted to try something other than Medications. Thanks for the tip. I can still hear the fogginess, but the pain is gone!


OMG, I love you people. I tried it on my daughter who was in tears because her ear hurt so bad. After a couple drops of lemon she was feeling better. Thanks a million.


i had a bad ear infection and i tried the lemon juice but it hurts real bad for about a minute or so


I am amazed at just how well this did work. Before the lemon juice, I couldn't even touch my ear it hurt so bad. While I was draining the lemon juice out, I could feel the difference in pain level. I was able to touch, itch, rub, it which felt sooooo good because it itched! Thanks for the tip. I will use it forever!


My little brother got an ear infection mid day, and he was in agony and pain, so what i did was i went online and i found this home remedy, so i was like wow, this seems logical (the ph and the fungus and such) and so i told him to put some drops of lemon juice in his hear, he was hesitant at first so i put lemon juice on a Q-tip and let him swab his ear out a bit (it did sting a bit of course, but that means its working! ;]) and then i eventually got him to put actual drops of lemon juice in his ear, his face expression was a painful one, but he was sure glad after we did that he fell straight to sleep MID DAY!!! must of been the motrin i gave him lol, but anyway he's feeling much better and sound asleep, thanks for the tip!!!


I am 26, just had a sinus infection, and got a really bad ear infection. The pressure was so bad at times that I would occasionally get spells (Appx. 1-3 mins. long) of vertigo. I could not sleep because of the intense pressure, and ringing. I tried putting an onion in my ear(suggested by my wife's family). THAT HAD NO MAJOR RESULTS! So, since it is the weekend, I tried the lemon juice because I had a lemon at home, and it seemed logical. I put some juice in my ear, and let it drain... instant relief! all of the pressure was gone. It came back about 1 hour later, but much less pressure than before. I put more juice in my ear, and it went away again.
