May 10, 2014
Just lay down in your bed and put things like olive or baby oil it does not only have a lubricating effect but a pain easier as well. I really hoped this helped if not I am so super sorry! =._.=

Terrible earache

May 04, 2014
I've tried many things but finally I found the right one. I put a cotton ball/tissue and put peroxide on it, put it in your ear for one minute after a minute wash your ear out with warm water. After that get a heating pad/warm towel and put it on that ear for 10-12 minutes or if you prefer longer, do so. I Hope this helped, if not sorry.

For minor and strong earaches

April 18, 2014
Ever since I was about five I have had really bad earaches however, as I started getting older they started to occur only when I am on the plane and its about to land although, for some strange reason today I randomally had one of the worst earaches hence why I am still awake and it is 5:57. I actually cannot believe that I have an earache as tomorrow I have a date and this earache has just totally ruined my mood but I've been reading some of the advice on this site so I decided to try to help by simply telling you what I would do. I would never try or recommend peeing in a cup and pouring it into your ear as thats just disgusting, but I would suggest trying to yawn or chewing gum or on a hard mint or something like a toffee sweet. Chew for about 5 to 10 minutes if your ear has not popped yet then I would either suggest heating up a cloth, sock or even a heating pad for about 30 seconds in the microwave and then placing it on the ear that is score/affected. Once you have placed either the heating pad, sock, cloth anyone of your choice then lay down in your bed but make sure that you are laying down in a position where the ear that is score/affected is facing upwards and the ear that is not affected is leaning downwards on the pillow.

This should then help the pain to go away but it is always better to take a nap once you've placed the heated material of your choice on your ear so that by the time you wake up the pain should of completely disappeared as it might take a while for the pain to go away completely depending on how bad the pain is and how bad the ear is affected inside. But either way if the pain is strong or minor heating the cloth, sock or heating pad will ease the pain giving you some time to call a doctor or allowing you to take a peaceful nap so that in the morning you then can visit the doctors. However, if your earache is minor but you want to do something about it because it is annoying you or you are feeling a small amount of pain which is not allowing you to sleep comfortably (which is basically the kind of earache im experinecing) then I would just suggest that you take two parcetamols and just have a lay down whilst chewing gum or forcing a yawn until the ear pops or until the painkillers kick in.

I really hope this long paragraph was worth it so good luck and hopefully you will get better soon. Chau

Hydrogen peroxide

March 17, 2014
So I had a really bad earache in both ears. I read every remedy on this website and was scared to try most of them or was in to much pain to do the others. Finally I decided to try hydrogen peroxide. All I did was take a cotton ball and put some peroxide on it and put it in my ear making sure I got in my ear.
After a minute I washed my ear out with warm water and then used a heating pad and it's worked so far. Hope this helps xxxxx

Doctor and medicine

February 27, 2014
This isn't a home remedy, but I tried tons of these home remedies and mostly they just made it worse. I would suggest painkillers from the doctor or pharmacist, not peeing in your ear.

Bang......and the ache is gone

February 23, 2014
I've always suffered from chronic earache so bad that the acid from my ear would peel my skin off my skin/face. Anyway tonight I was in so much pain so I boiled a cup of water then put a bottle of Vegtable oil and place 2-3 drops in my ear. At first the pain was still there and I started thinking that it wasnt working but after half hour the pain completely went away. Not everything can be done in 30 seconds just be patient and the pain will go away. Hope my advice works as I know the pain:( Thank you for reading. W.M
