White Vinegar!! It is about 3 am and I could not sleep due to inner ear itching and pain from my ear infection. I noticed that when I get a sore throat, it is always followed by an ear infection. I used my usual, cotton swab soaked in alcohol and that provides temporary relief but today the pain and itching returned. I read this site and found to use a mixture 50/50 of alcohol and white vinegar. I am not one to 'mix' things so I got up the nerve to try the vinegar alone since I used alcohol earlier to no avail. My right ear is not as bad as the left one, so I tried that one first. I placed 3 drops of white vinegar... undiluted in my ear and left it there for 3 minutes. While it was in there, I noticed that when I swallowed the fluid moved down further in my ear canal so I continued to make swallowing motions. I let that drain out and tried the left ear. This ear hurt and itch really bad, but I put 3 drops of fluid in it and it did not burn... I could feel it moving down in the canal as I continued the swallowing motions. I let that drain out and 'immediately' felt better. I notice that the pain... itching sensation is gone. Since that worked for my ears, I got up the nerve to gargle with white vineger... undiluted! Once you get past the taste, it worked! I had to swallow about a teaspoon so that It could get all the way down my throat. I feel much better and is headed for bed. This definitely worked for me!

Just found this as my 5 yr old daughter woke up crying with perfect symtoms of ear ache. So far so good almost immediately.


Right now I'm wishing I had my sixty five dollars back from my Dr. just so she could give me a prescription. The prescription was working extremely slow if at all. Ran across this site, used the vinegar and within about 10-15 mins I was already feeling better. I also had a sour throat that started fading away at the same time. I'm happy.


I really wish I would have come to this site before I went to the DR. My ear got really clogged last week and by friday it was sore and saturday it was hurting pretty bad. I'll have to be sure to try this becuz I often get ear infections at least once a year. Its already almost gone due to the antibiotics the DR. put me on but ill def have to try this next time.

Forever Grateful

My 4 year old son woke up at 1:45 crying about an ear ache so I got online to try and look up some home remedies found this one and tried it... AWESOME!!! I put it on a cotton ball squeezed a few small drops in his ear, put another dry cotton ball in his ear so we could catch what drained out, we took the cotton ball out a short while later when he told me his ear felt better. Thank you soooo much. Now we can get back to sleep. You are an angel.


Both white and apple cider vinegar worked for me. Im still a little stuffed up, but not in as much pain now. Thank you so much...
