Mouthwash Relief For Severe Ear Ache

Submitted by Eddie B

Apply a tea spoon of mouthwash into the infected ear. I don't know if any one will do but I used a store brand of Blue Mint Antiseptic Mouth Rinse. It worked like magic.

It Works!!! Comments By: Sue from Delaware on 2005-01-09
My 17 yr. old daughter woke up Christmas morning at 4 am with severe shooting ear pain. I soaked a cotton ball with mouthwash and put it in her ear. It took her pain away immediately! I have told everyone about this. I few days later I took her to the doctor and she had swimmer's ear but this remedy did take away her severe pain.

I would have never thought of this or even tried it except the mineral oil thing didnt help and when the dr's office is closed need to do something to avoid a er fee. Thanks!

I don't know if I somehow did this wrong, (although it dosen't seem like there could be too many ways to put mouthwash in your ear) but I still am in alot of pain. It's 4:09 in the morning and I'm crying because I want to sleep!
Wow Works Comments By: Chris on 2005-05-22
This amazingly worked on my wife. However her ear stung after a couple of mins due to her sensitive skin.
Hey, it worked! Comments By: Anon on 2005-05-23
I had a nagging, intermittant, stabbing pain in my left ear. I dipped a cotton ball in some listerine and put it in my ear, and the pain isn't totally gone, but it is MUCH less than a few minutes ago.
didn't work as good as i thought it would Comments By: Kayla on 2005-06-22
After reading these comments i figured it would work wonders but now i have this burning sensation in my ear that won't go away.
