So, I woke up at 2am with horrible ear pain. My mum told me to put a hot water bottle on my ear, and it helped a bit, but after coming on here, I tried something else. If you get an old hand towel, and dip it in a bowl of hot water then apply to your ear, all pain immediately disappears. It's really simple but effective :) hope this helped.
I found this as a home remedy but altered it last night (easier) and worked wonders! First, the person said cook salt until brown, put in cloth and hold to ear (blocking out air with salt in towel over ear opening). Careful! Salt is very hot! Well, I cooked salt, set off smoke alarm and it never turned brown but that worked better than percocet! Well, last night woke up in pain again and took the same washcloth with 4 tbsp. salt in it, put about a tbsp of water on outside of cloth where salt was and microwaved for a minute. Put it to my ear opening for a minute (allowing 'vapors or whatever was helping' to permeate into the ear). I went back to sleep and pain free for 9 hrs. This one's a bad one-- worse than I've had in years, which I used to treat with percocet and antibiotics. But, this salt thing is a miracle! Nothing in the ear means no harm and nothing but relief. Try it!
FIRST REMEDY TO PREVENT further ear INFECTIONS - STOP TAKING ANTIBIOTICS.
ONE OF THE PRIME SYMPTOMS FOR CANDIDA INFECTION IS !!!!REOCCURRING EAR OR SINUS INFECTIONS!!!!!!!, ONE OF PRIME CAUSE OF CANDIDA OUTBREAK - ANTIBIOTICS.
HERE IS MY STORY.
After I immigrated to Canada I had flue viruses for which doctors prescribed strong drugs. I started developing EAR INFECTIONS, with Horrible pains and swelling. It happened that I had 6 ear inflamations in one year and TOOK 6 COURSES OF ANTIBIOTIC IN YEAR, not realising that Antibiotic Itself was making me vulnerable to next infection. I developed severe cANDIDA INFECTION in entire body. Please research Candida. One of the symptoms for candida is reaccuring ear infections, one of the prime cause - is Antibiotic intake. If you research Gut Flora you'll read the effect of antibiotic that doctors ignore totally. Now for 5 years I havent taken any antibiotics, I survived on natural remedies and ignored 20 antibiotic prescriptions over these 5 years given by doctors for various reasons., . I try to fight Candida, taking Ozonated Water, Silver Water, Neem drinks, Oregano Oil (as strongest natural antibiotic, Coconut oil...keeping sugar and flou free diet. (as soon as I take any flour or starch product candida multiplies and I get rush in my ears and scalp)BE Kind To Yourself.....Doctors forgot how to treat, they keep on killing everything good or bad withing you leaving you helpless. CLEANSE YOUR COLONE WITH dR iRON'S COLONE PRODUCT, DETOXIFY YOUR BODY AND STRENGTHEN IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH NATURAL VITAMINS MINERALS. THEN INFECTION WONT BE ABLE TO ATTACK YOU AND NO NEED TO GO TO DOCTOR.
Omg my ear has been throbing for 2 days i read about the tea tee oil and put some in my ear and within 5 minutes i can't believe the difference i just put some in a dropper and used it straight out of the bottle
Last staturday I was having pain in my right ear. I used ear dorps (Betneysol) but they didn't work out. Infact they increased the pain. I got my ear blocked.I could hear no sound. Then i got frustrated and eat a tablet of Augmenten 1000 mg before sleeping and slept away. Around 3:00 am i woke up, something was draining out of my ear. It was a greenish fluid. I washed it. and feeling good. Pain was reduced. so in case of pain in ear,You may use Augumenten 1000 mg. never use ear drops. But it is far better to consult with a doctor before using this tablet Augumenten 1000 mg. But in my case i used it without consulting a doctor because i was having a lot of pain.
My daughter was very very ill with high fever and ear infection. I was told by my doctor to put into the ear a few drops of olive oil mixed with garlic oil. Twice a day for a week. Very simple and powerful remedy from mother nature itself.
Placed a clove of garlic in my ear for 45 mins. Weird, bit it worked. Sore throat, etc all better. Seems to have worked!
TAKE A HAND WARMER PACKET TWO OF THEM AND PUT THEM IN A BOOTY SOCK THEY LAST UP TO 5 HOURS AND PUT IT TO YOUR BAD EAR AND TAKE A NAP AND WHEN U WAKE UP ALL BETTER HOPE IT HELPS
My son hasd ear infections almost since birth. Wound up with ear tubes at 9 months. Then went to snus infections. None of the MD's had a clue - all kept giving antibiotics - each infection they would start with amoxicillin and end up with zpack. The infection would keep coming back every few months. No MD even considered a fungal infection as the primary cause, making a perfect environment for a ssecondary bacterial infection. We finally, at 8 years old, found a naturopathic doctor in the area who detected the fungal infection and got rid of it - he's 14 years old now and had maybe 3 sinus infections and has had one ear infection since he was 8. Before you consider tubes - check for a fungal infection - we had problems with the tube removal - wound up needing 1/2 his eardrum replaced with a graft. Not fun. Good luck all.
While recovering from a cold I woke up one morning with killer ear pains. I tried aromatherapy, a hot bath, and a few of my go-to teas. Nothing worked until a friend told me that when they were younger they would hold a hot glass over their ear to pull out the pressure. I set a pan on the stove and added a small handfull of slices of fresh garlic, onion and seasalt. Stir in 2 tablespoons of water, and 2 drops of red thyme essential oil. Don't let it boil or the water will evaporate to quickly, just simmer for 5-10 minutes. Fold a hand towel in half and pour the hot mixture onto the towel but be careful not to let the towel get to soaked and keep back a bit of the water. Fold the towel of few more times to wrap up the mixture and keep in from burning you skin (because it will be hot). Just place it on your ear (not in your ear) until it cools and warm it back up in the microwave (for about 10 seconds)when it does, do this for at least 30 minutes. This will not cure an infection but helps with the pain (or at least it did for me). Good luck, and remember that you somtimes need to give in and go to the doctor if it's bad enough.
