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.

Miracle, definitely try if you have not it, really does work.

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.

My ear pain remedy is already tried in my grandfather and it's work. It's simple and quick that very helpful to those have ear pain problems. Just crush a piece of garlic then mix it with coconut oil. Apply it using a piece of cotton. Note: Don't apply it to the inner side, applying it in the ear door way is enough... Hope it helps.

Salt in a pan remedy
November 07, 2013
Take thick cut sea salt and warm it on a pan for three to five minutes but not so it gets brown or too hot. Then put it in a cloth or for me a small sock and hold it on your ear. I recommend A nap on your ear with the sock under the hurting ear. Works and helps a lot!

Great great granny's remedy
November 06, 2013
Ever since I was little I've been having really bad ear aches due to wetness and, when I say wetness I mean like any water touches my ears and the pain starts no matter how small the drop of water is. I've tried just about every remedy for an ear ache that there is on the computer from the little paper cone on fire in your ear to a heating pad, and none of these work at all.
The only thing that works all the way in a matter of seconds is I know it sounds really revolting to do but it's adult male urine. I've tried my little brothers and my own urine and it did not work. Don't use more than a lil drop just enough to fill it hit your ear. Don't use a stream. Don't knock it till you've tried it. Just remember this post the next time you have an ear ache and you have tried every thing in the book. IT WORKS!!!!! Good luck.
