How to get rid of Earache naturally?

Earache is a common problem among adults and children alike. These are often caused by mild infections or a change in the altitude. Earache can be really annoying and severe at times.

Here are some ways to get rid of earache naturally :

  1. To get relief from earache quickly, use a hair dryer on low setting to warm the ear. But be careful not to use it on hot setting.
  2. Pour some garlic juice in the ear. This will take away the pain as garlic has antibiotic properties.
  3. If your ear ache is due to an altitude change, chew some gum or yawn to soothe the pain.
  4. If you got an earache from swimming, this condition is usually called ‘swimmer’s ear’. Put some mineral oil in both the ears before going in the water.
  5. Put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide into your ear. Then tilt your head on the side and let the peroxide drain out.
  6. Put something warm on your aching ear, such as a heating pad or a warm cloth.
  7. Extract the juice of holy basil leaves and put 2 drops in the aching ear.
  8. Steep 2 tsp chamomile flowers in boiling water for about 15 minutes. Then strain the water and put the hot flowers in a cloth and apply to the aching ear.
  9. Chop some garlic into small pieces and simmer in 1/4 cup olive oil for 30 minutes. Then let it cool and store in a bottle. Whenever you are using it, heat it slightly and use as ear drops 2 times a day. And plug your ears after putting the drops, with cotton for 10 minutes. Do not use this if you have a ruptured eardrum or an external injury to the ear.

If your pain is very bad and doesn’t go away with all these remedies, see a doctor immediately. He may give you an antibiotic or mild drops to cure the problem.

    You could also try ear candles. They use heat and a gentle sucking created from the candle to remove wax from the ear. You can get them at most health food shops.Thanks!
