Ear Infection Remedies
suggested by Tim on Saturday, November 10, 2007

I have used Hydrogen Peroxide all my life for ear infections. Its only recent that physicians are adapting the same technique. Tilt your head sideways and pour the peroxide into your ear and let it stay in until it stops fizzing, then turn your head over a towel and drain it out. This will insure that all infection is dead. Repeat again after you pour out the first treatment.

lay down and turn head sideways and fill ear w/hydrogen peroxide. leave it in for about 8 min and then turn head and let peroxide drain out of ear- while doing the other ear. the peroxide boils & looses everything bad in your ears.

Slice an onion in half and grill in pan until hot. cover with paper towel and apply cut side down to ear. the onion will draw out the infection and help to alleviate pain in the ear almost immediately.

never put olive oil into an ear that is giving pain as the pain usually means there is infection present and olive oil can make it worse.oil should only be used to soften wax.

my daughter had an ear infection, her doctor gave her an antibiotic, which caused severe abdominal pain daily, it didn't work, so a second antibiotic was administered, i finally saw an acupuncturist who suggested smashing up peeled tumeric root with a little water for eardrops.

garlic and potatoes
suggested by Nashira on Wednesday, May 9, 2007

When my son was a little boy he suffered from chronic ear infections. The doctors could not find an antibiotic strong enough to keep the infection away. Later we learned he was alergic to pasteurized milk and dairy. But before we realized this we had gone on a trip out of town and my son had another severe ear ache accompanied with fever. Staying with friends and having no medicines on hand I improvised. I warmed crushed a clove of garlic in some olive oil and put it in my son's ear. I heated some cornmeal in a pan and placed it in a pillow case then tied a knot and had him lay his head on it (the corn holds the heat). Then I cut a potato in half and taped the cut edge to his feet to draw out the excessive heat from the fever. His fever broke 30 minutes later and he slept peacefully through the night. The ear ache was gone the next day. I used this treatment until we discovered the milk culprit.
