Earache Relief

I always seem to get earaches in the summer from swimming, and winter from the cold air. I have a few home remedies that will help you with the pain.

Mullein Garlic Pure Ear Oil

This is kid friendly, work within 6 hours and the only earache medication I do buy. Follow the directions, add a cotton ball and you are DONE! You can add this medication to your achy ear up to 4 times a day. You will smell like garlic.

Garlic

Heat 2-3 cloves of garlic on stove with olive oil for 5 minutes. Remove garlic and use cotton ball to get some juice, squeeze off excess and put in ear. Use this oil 3-4 times a day for best results.

Onion

Onions can help fight pain like garlic. Heat 2 slices of onion on stove with olive oil for 5 minutes. Remove onion and use a cotton ball to get some juice. Squeeze out excess juice and place cotton ball in your ear. Use this oil 3-4 times a day for best results.

Over The Counter Medicine

When the pain comes, get some OTC medicine to help alleviate ear pain. Aleve, Ibuprofen, and Tylenol are all great. Make sure to use them interchangeably so you get the most benefit.

Hydrogen Peroxide

This is great to use for clogged ears and swimmers’ ear. Just add 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide to your ear, let it fizz, and turn your head to drain. Make sure to have a towel, debris will come out.

Hot andĀ Cold Compresses

These compresses are useful for many ailments. Just make sure to use for 20 minutes at a time. Cold compresses can be made with ice in a Ziplock bag. Hot compresses can be made with hot washcloths. Make sure to put a towel over the compresses. Never apply directly to skin, you may get hurt.
