Pain of ear ache gone

As soon as you feel a ear ache coming on and who hasn't, apply a hot face cloth to the ear and repeat a few times. Make sure its not too hot but watch as the ear ache is gone!!! I could not believe it at first. I read about it a few times and decided to try it and guess what, it works. Why didn't someone share this with me when I was young and had a ear ache and suffered.??

That's all it takes. Just fill the cap with the Peroxide, dip a Q-tip in it, and clean your ear. I used three Q-tips and now my pain is gone!

Chew gum

Today I had an earache and the pain was excrutiating...the advil was finished...so I thought that people chew gum on planes for ear problems so I'll give it a shot...it eased the pain....it seemed like the jaw motion loosens your ear canal.....also for very temporary relief I got a towel and wet it with hot water,..then put it in my ear and pushed on the towel....this helped while it was held there....when I took it away the pain was back...ultimatly the gum helped me.

Peppermint Essential Oil

I had a wicked ear ache for a few hours here. I tried the olive oil with no luck. So I got my Peppermint Essential Oil and put a few drops on a cotton ball and dabbed it around the outside of my ear but not right in the ear canal. Works like a charm. I feel no more pain. :)

olive oil trick

I tried the rice in a sack,the blow dryer, and the hot towel. None of them worked. So what I did is poured a little extra virgin olive oil in a smal cup, heated it in the microwave for about 30seconds-1min and grabbed a cotton swab. I dipped the cotton swab in the olive oil and left it in my ear for 5 minutes. It worked like a charm.

Old Home Remedy - Bear With Me

When I was a kid, my adult cousin had an unbearable earache. My mother told him she had a cure, if he wouldn't get mad at her. He responded, "Get mad at you? Why would I get mad at you if it helps?"
She left the room, came back in a couple minutes, told him to hold his head to the side, and put a few drops into his ear. In a few minutes, the earache was gone. The remedy? Urine.
My mom told me she'd learned it from her mother as a girl. According to her, it had to be someone else's urine, adding to my reluctance. I didn't see how the heck urine could cure an earache!
Many years later, I had a terrible earache, and as a last resort, had my wife put a few drops of her urine in my ear. In just a couple minutes, the earache was gone!
I don't even want to contemplate how anyone discovered urine could cure an earache. Kinda makes me wonder what they tried before making THAT discovery!
