What kind of olive oil is good for ear aches in toddlers?

Olive oil has always been considered a great remedy for ear aches and infections in the ear. Ear aches in toddlers are best treated with natural remedies and treatments. However, if you are planning to use olive oil to cure the ear ache in your toddler, use only extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the oil which is obtained from the first press. This is undiluted, unadulterated, and very therapeutic in a lot of ways. Natural cures for ear aches can be used to treat aching ears. Olive oil is one of the best cures and it is best used when it is warm. This helps improve the therapeutic effects of the oil when you pour it into your toddler’s ear. Olive oil contains antioxidants which provide a healing effect.

You can use a dropper to pour a few drops of the olive oil into your child’s ear. You can also use the olive oil by applying it directly into the ear using a piece of cotton soaked in the oil. Just soak the cotton ball, tilt your child’s head, and squeeze the cotton ball into your child’s ear so that the drops fall directly into the ear. This could be repeated for the other ear after some time.

Is hydrogen peroxide safe for ears?

Hydrogen peroxide is a strong chemical and you may wonder whether putting it into your ear may be the right thing to do. A lot of people claim that hydrogen peroxide is the best method of naturally treating ear aches and infected ears. The truth is that with hydrogen peroxide, ear aches can be treated completely. In fact, using hydrogen peroxide is completely healthy and very effective especially if you have ears clogged due to ear wax or if you have an infection due to clogged ears. Hydrogen peroxide is the easiest way to clear your ears of any kind of wax clogging. However, it is important to note that you should never use hydrogen peroxide in its original concentration and strength. To dilute the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide, mix it with warm water.

There is a specific way in which the peroxide and water solution is added to the ear. This is known as an irrigation process. This should ideally be done only in a clinic, under the supervision of a medical practitioner. If you have an inner ear infection, this irrigation will not have any effect. Hydrogen peroxide is only useful when you have an infection in the outer ear.

What are some natural treatments to get rid of ear aches?

Ear infection is a very common condition and almost everyone experiences it at some time in their life. An antibiotic treatment takes could take a lot of time to be effective and in the meanwhile, you would continue to experience pain. If you want to get rid of ear aches, you should use home remedies which can offer you instant relief.

If you want to relieve ear aches, keep them covered so that they are protected from cold and dry winds. These can cause the earaches to become even more painful. If your ears are aching, wear some earplugs and protect them from infection. If you are swimming in a public pool, you can use earplugs to prevent infection. To prevent water from entering into your ears, wear ear plugs while you shower. If you are suffering from a cold, always blow your nose very slowly so that there is no undue pressure on your ears.

When you are removing wax from your ears, do not use ear buds regularly. This is because the more ear buds you use, the more you will end up pushing the wax into the inner ear canal. In such a case, you will need to remove the ear wax using a diluted hydrogen peroxide mixture.
