INSTANT RELIEF for agonizing earache!

Submitted by Tabitha G

I don't know about the mouthwash trick, but i just discovered INSTANT RELIEF for my excruciating, agonizing earache!  My best friend once told me her doctor gave her ear drops with lidocaine when she has earaches...after searching through every cabinet at my house and then my mom's...i found a tube of Orajel, the label read 20% benzocaine.

Well, I filled my ear canal (GENTLY) and put a little piece of a cotton ball just inside my ear...within SECONDS, the pain started diminishing and in less than 5 minutes my earache is barely noticeable!!  It's 1 hour later and still no pain!  Hope this is safe and helps another poor soul.

creams Comments By: s wilson on 2007-07-14
my mother used cream for years from doc as she had a burst ear drum and she had no problems with hearing so it must work
 
Ahhh Relief! Comments By: A. Sues on 2007-08-13
I was desperate a few moments ago. I had to do something about this ear pain. It makes sense that the benzocaine would work, so I try it and it worked right away. I also put the flashlight up to my ear to warm it a little earlier, but I think with this kind of pain I would need more batteries. I do not really care about hearing out of it at the moment, but I still think I will check up with a dr. tomorrow.

Seems to help Comments By: Dick Emery on 2008-11-05
I did not put Orajel directly into the canal but rubbed some into the outer portion of the canal and it does seem to be helping. I then Googled and read you can get eardrops from the doctor with Benzocaine in it for the pain so seems a safe remedy if not a fix for the underlying cause. I would prefer not to put Orajel in too far though because of the other ingredients in it that may be harmful. Best to err on the side of caution.

THANK YOU FOREVER!!!!!!! Comments By: Elaine on 2010-03-15
As a child I suffered horrible earaches that left me screaming for hours and days only to find relief when I would pass out from exhaustion. When my daughter had an earache oh how I could remember the pain and wished I could zap it from her. Your tip worked. We thank you so much.

My partner woke up with excruiating pain in his ear so much so he started to scare me and I started to panic! I tried olive oil and it did nothing! I've just put some orajel on a piece of cotton wool and put it in his ear and within minutes he's asleep!!! Thank you so much for the tip!
