Hydrogen peroxide

March 17, 2014
So I had a really bad earache in both ears. I read every remedy on this website and was scared to try most of them or was in to much pain to do the others. Finally I decided to try hydrogen peroxide. All I did was take a cotton ball and put some peroxide on it and put it in my ear making sure I got in my ear.
After a minute I washed my ear out with warm water and then used a heating pad and it's worked so far. Hope this helps xxxxx

Doctor and medicine

February 27, 2014
This isn't a home remedy, but I tried tons of these home remedies and mostly they just made it worse. I would suggest painkillers from the doctor or pharmacist, not peeing in your ear.

Bang......and the ache is gone

February 23, 2014
I've always suffered from chronic earache so bad that the acid from my ear would peel my skin off my skin/face. Anyway tonight I was in so much pain so I boiled a cup of water then put a bottle of Vegtable oil and place 2-3 drops in my ear. At first the pain was still there and I started thinking that it wasnt working but after half hour the pain completely went away. Not everything can be done in 30 seconds just be patient and the pain will go away. Hope my advice works as I know the pain:( Thank you for reading. W.M

The 2 finger trick

February 22, 2014
So I have a earache today and it didn't really start to bother me unlit like 7:00 or so. I started looking at ways to get rid of it and I found that if you take your index finger an your middle finger and placing your index finger in front of your ear and your middle finger behind your ear and rubbing up and down how ever many times you feel is needed or unlit it's gone.

Sweet oil and tea tree oil

February 01, 2014
Last night, I woke up around 3:30am with a horrible ear ache. I don't get them very often now, but I used to get them all the time when I was little. I mixed together some sweet oil and tea tree oil, put a couple of drops in my ear, and put a cottonball in my ear to hold the liquid in. I left it in for about 10 minutes and then wiped it all out of my ear. It really helped to alleviate the pain, so I hope it will help you too :)

Earache queen

February 01, 2014
Many ideas here are close but not complete. First of all.. NO URINE. Sort out with drinking lots of water and CRANBERRY JUICE. Warmed liquids may feel best. TheraFlu (I use generic with less water and honey or sugar). Peroxide is great and to clean out wax regularly. I had neglectful parents and took care of green pus in ears by boiling it loose/disolving it out with peroxide. Water in ears will come out and should be out...Lay ear on heat pad or make your own by nuking damp towel to warm in plastic grocery bag. Has saved me many times with sinus headaches using those as, as well.

Easy and noninvasive ear ache solution

January 23, 2014
Hold a hair dryer about 10 inches away towards the bad ear on a warm setting for no more than 5 minutes. Mine was gone in 4 minutes. Couldn't believe it and I tried everything from heat, meds and olive oil. So grateful. Wish I knew about this when my children were young.
