I took a shower at 2:34am and then I dried my ear and put some ear drops in my aching ear. I would really like to sleep at night but with an ear ache I know that's hard for some people I have had this ear ache for three days now and nothing has seemed to work so far but the shower helped a lot so does some ibreprophren and ear drops! TRY IT,IT REALLY WORKS!

Omg, so this may sound weird, but all I have to say is finger in the ear!!! Okay, bear with me. I'm 14 and I have a date tomorrow, so you can believe I want to get rid of my terrible earache. It hurt so bad, so I took my index finger and placed it inside of my ear and then my thumb and made kinda like a V with it outside my ear and began to rub both fingers up and down and in little circles GENTLY until I heard popping in the ear.
When I heard the popping I kept going. After about 5 minutes of that I washed my hands and took some ibuprofen and FINALLY went to sleep. It was such an easy way to get rid of it without waking up my parents. Yay! Date time!

Vicks and hot damp wash cloth
May 20, 2015
I found this remedy on here and it worked right away. My 6 year old was in tears over the pain. I put Vicks around his ear and then I put some on a cotton, placed it in his ear like an earbud and then put a warm wash cloth over it. He fell right to sleep. Thanks guys.

I have been covering from a chest infection and turned out to get a bad ear ache from 7 to half past 1 in the morning tried loads of things did not work then I tried rubbing Vicks around your ear not in your ear and getting a hot water bottle cloth etc and placing it in your ear for as long as u need. Might not stop the pain completely but lowers the pain right down to where u can get back to rest.

I read through all these remedies and found the common thread seemed to be heat. I could not stand another second of this pain. So I remembered years ago of getting relief by taking a SHOWER. The steam and warmth of the shower helped immensely and I was finally able to sleep. This a.M. The ear ache is gone.

Garlic clove and netti pot
April 07, 2015
I was in excruciating pain and with all my might got on google and found this website. I seen use a garlic clove. So that what I did I grabbed a garlic clove crushed it open like normally then broke off a piece big enough that in wouldn't enter my ear canal but no big enough that it would set in my ear (kinda like ear buds). Any ways, after an hour it started to feel better but I was still hurting so I started to boil some water and hover over it. I really think the combination help relief the pain because after just a min it began popping back to normal. I highly recommend this method. It really works.

I honestly didn't think Vicks and a warm washcloth would work. But I woke up about three hours ago in serious pain. My hearing pad did nothing. I took some ibuprofen... Nothing. So lastly, I put Vicks around my ear and lied down on a warm washcloth. I can FEEL my earache going down. I am so glad I did this!!!!

Tried the Vics Vapor Rub on a cotton ball with warm wash cloth. OMG! Saved me. 30 minutes of constant pain and finally something that provides relief.

You get a cotton ball and you put some of the Vicks on it., then you put the cotton ball with the ointment into your ear. Don't stuff it to far but put it in a little like an ear plug. Then you get a heating pad or hot towel, or even a moist hot cloth and you place it over your ear. Wait until 5 to 10 minutes after the ointment starts to cool in your ear.. I did this and it worked great.

My 8 year old son was inconsolable for the last 2 hours. I tried the Vick's on a cotton ball and covered that with a warm washcloth and the relief was almost instant. He was asleep within 3 minuets. It worked for skeptical me. THANKS!!!
