Relief from Earaches

Submitted by Yapper

Carefully wave a hairdryer back and forth over the sore ear.The heat from the hairdryer will relieve the pain and most often puts my children to sleep also.

sleeping like a baby Comments By: Becca on 2007-10-31
My son woke up in the middle of the night screaming in pain with his ear. I used a hot damp cloth at first and it seemed to take the edge off only for a minute or two. I also gave him Tylenol and after about an hour he was still in terrible pain. I read about the hairdryer thing and decided to give it a try...almost immediately he calmed down. After a couple minutes he smiled and said he felt better. He then went to sleep and slept like a baby.

Indeed, this gives pain relief for around 15minutes, enough time to get back to sleep :)

worst thing you could do Comments By: Kelly on 2011-02-10
Putting direct air in your ear is the worst thing you could do. It could cause damage to the cochlea in the inner ear and even cause permenant damage and cause one to become deaf
