Worse pain ever from cold

January 15, 2014
I woke up at 3am this morning with the worse pain ever in my ear. I started reading some of these and began to try them. I was in so much pain I was going to do everything. I started with the heat from a sock with rice, no good. Then olive oil warmed then put with dropper in ear, no luck. Finally I tried the peroxide and I got some relief. Hope it helps you too.

Rice pouch

January 08, 2014
You know how a few grains of rice in a salt shaker help prevent moisture from clogging the shaker? Well, a rice "pouch" can help an earache through the use of heat and moisture. You can make your own. Use a clean sock or a small cloth bag without any metal. Loosely fill with uncooked rice. Heat in the microwave. I can't tell you how long since it will depend on the size of the rice bag and how much rice. You don't want to "cook" it, just get it comfortably hot. Place on recliner headrest or your pillow and lay affected ear on this. It should help. It stays warm for quite a while and is reusable.

I had a terrible earache last night and I don't usually get them but I think it came from the cold I have anyways I tried the ear drops and that only made it worse so I took a small hand towel and ran it under hot water, then ring out all of the water and lay down on your side with the affected ear facing up then place it over your ear and the pain goes away immediately and the throbbing will stop.

I've doing this ever since I was a little. Grab a garlic piece and chop it up into little pieces then heat it up on a cooking pan until it looks yellowish or a little burnt. Then grab a cotton or a piece of napkin and put the garlic in it and roll it up. Then while it's warm put it on your ear. It won't work instantly but put it 3 times a day. Well hopefully it works for you as it did for me.

Sick on thanks giving !

November 29, 2013
I've been sick all week of thanks giving but today is thanks giving worst earache ever as I was reading these remedies I put a heating pad to my ear and took ibuprofen and Robytusin. I read all if the remedies and honestly it didn't go away but it has helped so much I am seventeen and cried like a baby! Witch is not normal since I have six huge tattoos and in Rolland derby don't do drops! I did and that's why my ear still hurts but my throat hurts too but the pad helps it. Just take a nap or go to bed (like me ) and hopefully it will be gone but so far this is helping me.
