Tea Tree OilYears ago I visited a Cherokee medicine man who recommended this for ear care and earaches. Using an eye dropper place a couple of drops of tea tree oil(Melaleuca)into your ear. If you have Swedish bitters dip a small bit of cotton into it and squeeze out excess. Place into ear to hold tea tree oil in place. If you don't have the bitters OK. Do this before bed and remove in morning. Repeat 5 nights in a row. Then use some drops of hydrogen peroxide. Lay on your side, place drops in ear and let the peroxide bubble. Finally rinse with a couple of drops of apple cider vinegar. Vinegar will re-establish the correct ph in ear. Follow this anytime you feel an earache coming on. I have not had an earache until I started using my cell phone a lot.

Urine and Blow Dryer?Okay, so I'm 15 years old, and have had an earache in both of my ears for about 2 days. I couldn't bear the pain anymore. I read a bunch of remedies, and the last I tried worked the best. Me and my friend were so not trying to put urine my ear. But I just couldn't handle it anymore. I peed in a cup, and put a few drops into my ear. After about 3 minutes, I titled my head onto a cloth like substance and the Urine came out. I then put the blow dryer about 18 inches from my ear for about 3 more minutes. It was unbelievable how fast the pain went away. If it hurts that bad, really, just pee in your ear.

murine.Murine helps by cleansing your ear canal. It drys it out so the mucus in your ear will come out quickly. It kills chlorine bacteria in your ear.

Pain of ear ache goneAs 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.??

Put vicks vaporub on one side and put it inside the ear.

PeroxideThat'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 gumToday 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.
