Earache. To get rid of an earache

To soothe an earache quick, cover your ear with a towel that has been moistened with warm water. The combination of heat and moisture is soothing and the heat will help melt earwax which could be contributing to the congestion.

Another treatment would be to squeeze a clove of garlic and put a few drops in the ear, it will help kill the bacteria that are causing the pain. also up the vitamin c and take some echinacea.

Ok your garlic idea worked very very well. But the problem is when I put the drop of garlic juice in my ear. It felt like it was working right away, and as in working, stinging really really badly. Haha but now that the stingings all gone it feels alot better. thanks.

Peroxide Comments By: Chelsea on 2009-11-15
Putting a few drops of 3% hydorgen peroxide in each ear, especially at the start, will kill the infection/cold. Takes just a few minutes. You will feel lots of tingling. Tilt your head to the side and let it drain. Helps quick, but wait until about 12 hours go by and you'll feel amazing!

I put garlic in my ear and then the hot towel over it and it didn't work at first but after I stuck at it and did it a few times it was feeling much better. to get to sleep I put a hot water bottle inside my pillow case which worked in the same way as the hot towel and when I woke up my agonising ear ache was completely gone :)

please to save you the trouble do not use IBUPROFEN it will make it worse. my doctor perscribed it to me and omg it was worse. i looked it up and it says do not use it because it will make it worse. just FYI.
Drink your earache away Comments By: Dr.Liquid on 2010-05-06
Okay this may sound stupid but it works, dehydration can cause earaches in many age ranges of people. try to drink as much clear liquid as possible. the hot towel works well, but never stick anything like garlic or lemon oil as this removes the natural oils inside the ear and away from the eardrum. I found if you take a few shots " of the good stuff" this helps put you to bed and allows your ears to drain. hope this helps
Help Comments By: Destiney on 2010-05-09

other tips Comments By: florence on 2010-05-12
a few drops of lavender oil on cotton wool, then place in the ear. before bed is good :)
Hairdryer (Y) Comments By: Amanda on 2010-05-25
The hairdryer tip is like instant pain relief, and the hot cloth works too but not as well. My ear still hasn't popped though, and it still hurts a bit after like 7 hours now. So annoying.
Earache Comments By: Anon on 2010-06-02
Ive been up for two days straight with ear and jaw pain, and to top it of i have exams all week and im in so much pain i literally scream in class. Ive tried hot compress and by doctor gave me pills and ear drops and told me to take Advil. the pain is so bad i cant beacause my ears kill. any ideas..
good luck Comments By: jamie on 2010-06-04
any advice if you have had an ear ache every morning for five days and every night pure agony. the towel things works but only takes away half the pain. How do you get juice out of garlic?????. also 6 days ago i had a bad earache in my right ear i put olive oil in but the olive oil was at a scolding temperature ooooouuuuuuccccchhhhh. I have a burnt ear and it kills. But now i am having the same pain in the other ear. What do i do?????? The doctor said have some co codamol but its useless and makes it worse. my best advice is warm olive oil not scolding. Just a few drops then put cotton wool in after. Always check temperature. GOOD LUCK. But please let me know how to get juice out of garlic and how long does it sting for??????
Oucheeeee.......ahhhhhhhh(:13 yr old relief:) Comments By: Esme Rea Garcia on 2010-06-09
It's like 2:12 in the morning and I couldn't sleep AT ALL...... I read the stuff about the hot towel and decided to try it out(: Out of nowhere the pain started to ease. There was popping so I guessed it was from the earwax melting. It felt sooo relieving (: thanks for the help people.(:
It sooths very well Comments By: Anon on 2010-06-22

Alright at first worse later Comments By: Anon on 2010-08-01
It works at first for about 10 mins then it gets much worse. DONT TRY IT EVER!
Go to the doctors? Comments By: Allie on 2010-08-10
The reason your ear may hurt while you have a cold is because your ear and your nose are somehow connected, and sometimes the Eustachian tube to the ear gets clogged or congested by mucous. But if you are having earaches reguarly and it's a pain I would really advise going to the doctors.
wow Comments By: Nikki on 2010-08-16
im 15 and i tried the lemon juice and it actually worked a lil. then i put the warm cloth over my ear and the pain went away. thxs so much for the help.

Saviour! Comments By: Samantha on 2010-11-17
I used the warm cloth and lemon juice method as i had no idea how to get juice out of a garlic clove, i also used the warm onion method. While the warm onion made it slightly worse, the lemon juice and warm cloth took away the intense pain I've been feeling for nine hours. My hearing hasn't returned to normal yet but I'm continuing with the heated cloth, reheating it every five minutes, and applying more lemon juice every fifteen. These methods have absolutely saved me, I've gone from crying my eyes out and literally screaming in pain to normal in the space of ten minutes. Brilliant.
try the hairdryer Comments By: Connie on 2010-11-25
I was crying because of how much my ear was hurting and throbbing so just tried using a hairdryer on it, i held it over my ear for 10 mins which was soothing and now the pain has mostly gone although my ear still hasnt popped, definitely try it!
Thanks Comments By: Samuel on 2010-12-09

HOT RICE SOCK Comments By: 25 yr old on 2011-02-13
I listened to all of the advice and called a nurse hotline. She said to NEVER put something in your ear (lemon/garlic juice). But I did the tube sock with rice and heated it up (much easier than a wet towel that cools too quickly) and it worked! My ear popped like crazy and is draining a ton of liquid. I did it all night long. The pain is gone.
TRY IT SERIOUSLY Comments By: Jordaan:) on 2011-02-16
first of all get a hair dryer and put it on low and put it blowing in your ear for about 7-10mins then i had a dissolving Paracetamol about 30 mins after the hair dryer as soon as you turn the hair dyere off it will be painful for about 10mins so when you feel like it after 10mins take a paracetamol:) it realy works and im only 12 :) xx
Swimmers Ear Drops! Comments By: blooapple on 2011-02-24
I used swimmers ear drops and i felt them working right away.

I figured I got the ear ache because I am sick and have a lot of congestion so i also took Benadryl, Tylenol, and Nasal Spray and after half an hour the pain went away.

it might work!! Comments By: emma:) on 2011-03-04
if you like hold your nose and and close your eyes and keep your mouth shut:L the kind of push your breath out wards it should unpop your ears, sounds weird i know. but it does work ;)
This will work Comments By: Tifffferzie on 2011-03-11
I'm 13 years old and nothing will get rid of my ear ache just been told that you have to melt some ice for 1 min in microwave then add 1 tbls of lemon juice and 2-3 tbls jam this should turn to a paste if it doesn't add some flour and then but a table spoon of it into your ear and it will sooth instantly and when you wash it out the following morning all damage should be fine
tips on your earache Comments By: mattie on 2011-03-11
hi i'm 11 and i have a really bad earache. I tried putting a warm cloth on my ear but it didn't seem to help much. It felt really relaxing with the heat and all but when i took my ear off the cloth it was back to the same intense pain. i don't think that i want to try the garlic because it sounds really scary. i heard that it can really sting. i would say that your best bet is to put some alcohol in your ear and then let your ear sit to the side and then put a cotton ball in your ear. if that doesn't work then just try the hot towel
This will work Comments By: Tifffferzie on 2011-03-11

im a believer Comments By: kass on 2011-08-15
So I've had an ear for a couple days now and it wasn't as intense until tonight. My left ear feels like water was stuck in it. So it was plugged. I looked on here and decided to use the sock and rice method, & I mean it didn't pop my whole ear yet but its going. You just have to keep going back and forth to wet your sock w/hot hot water. Trust Me. I'm no believer of these remedies on the internet but this does work. Also I might add the pain was unbearable!! It woke me up cuz it was very bad but I feel amazing now! :)
