Earache 10 year old

Tried the Vics Vapor Rub on a cotton ball with warm wash cloth. OMG! Saved me. 30 minutes of constant pain and finally something that provides relief.

Vicks vaporub

You get a cotton ball and you put some of the Vicks on it., then you put the cotton ball with the ointment into your ear. Don't stuff it to far but put it in a little like an ear plug. Then you get a heating pad or hot towel, or even a moist hot cloth and you place it over your ear. Wait until 5 to 10 minutes after the ointment starts to cool in your ear.. I did this and it worked great.

Wow i'm impressed

My 8 year old son was inconsolable for the last 2 hours. I tried the Vick's on a cotton ball and covered that with a warm washcloth and the relief was almost instant. He was asleep within 3 minuets. It worked for skeptical me. THANKS!!!

What you do is you have to put up with the constant, irritating pain until it eventually stops. Mine took about a hour and the pain hurt like a mofo, I did try some ideas I spotted on the web however they didn't work for me.

Ear ache relief

I have found that eating 2 aspirins on an empty stomach does wonders to decongest the sinus passages, making it easy for the mucus to flow out and eliminates earaches quickly. If my ear is paining a lot the a heating pad is very helpful again to open up the passages and allow the fluids in the sinus cavities to drain.

I had an absolutely awful earache I'm not very prone to these as this was the first in a while but it was absolutely horrific. I had been suffering it since 7-12:30 I put Vicks inside of the ear and rubbed gently and heated a cloth up and placed it on my ear after 10 mins this was cured thank god as I have school tomorrow. :)

Vicks and heat

I am recovering from a chest infection and ended up with a really severe ear ache... Literally tried the oil and the heat and they didn't work... Then put some vicks on a cotton wool bud and put it around the shell of my ear... Not inside... Then put a fresh hot water bottle on it and laid there with it for 10 minutes and BAM!!! Pretty much gone... At least to a manageable, I can now ignore this sort of level... Hope this helps!

Vicks and heat

I have been having an earache so bad it developed into a migraine. I have tried everything under the sun in the last 2 days. Lastly, I put a capful of peroxide then I drained the ear. I then I put a dab of Vicks on a cotton ball and put the cotton ball into my ear and applied a heated cloth over my ear I am feeling immediate relief and may have saved myself a trip to the ER. Had I don't this first I would not have suffered an entire day.
