Ok so I am in so much pain from an ear ache. I don't want to spend the money to go to the doctor but it is getting to the point I may have to. Anyone know of any natural cures? I have tried 1/2 water 1/2 peroxide, heating pad and olive oil. Any ideas would help a lot!!

A doctor told me that most of the time, ear aches are caused by something other than infections, but if your ear is hurting really bad and you've already tried home remedies that didn't help, consider going to a doctor. It isn't worth losing your hearing over. My daughter had an throat infection that moved to her ear and her ear drum burst. That really hurt. If that's happened to you, you need medical attention to keep the infection from spreading. Moist heat will usually relieve part of the pain, even if it's an infection.

my mother use to do it some times for earaches..i think you should try it.. Take mustard oil 2 tbsp, heat it and then add 4 cloves of garlic in it..heat till garlic gets brown.it is done. Now after cooling this oil you can put it in your ears twice a day..i hope it will help you out of your ache.

Hello TriciaW, it seems you got a problem in your infected ear, I am wondering if you heard of ear candle therapy that is used by most of the alternative medicine experts or specialist. I don't know how they do that but it is one of the safe method used for ear infection that don't use harmful chemicals. Just look for alternative medical doctors regarding your infected ear.

Hi, triciaw. I feel so sorry hearing you are having earache now. I had felt what you feel now, it feels so uneasy in ear, then my old grandmother give a drink from the extract of turmeric and honey. I drink it twice or thrice, and no longer I'm healthy. It is so cheap,easy and has no bad effect. Hope it help you, get better soon friend
