Thread: Earache remedies?

  1. #1

    Earache remedies?

    I've had an earache ever since I got over the flu and strep. Doctor said to take allergy pills and flush the wax out..which I did and it didn't work. Got very little sleep so went and got some Hyland ear drops and putting warm compress on..took an Advil sinus congestion pill...waiting. Any remedies that work? I have to help my son move today...need this to go away!

    Thanks guys...and thanks for not telling me to blow smoke in my ear or duct tape a tomato slice to it. ( yes, I've heard that). The drops I used seem to be easing it "some" but I'll try these suggestions as well.

    I prefer warm mineral oil for lavage....

    Anything to break up the wax will usually help....

    A hot sauna. If you don't have a sauna available, blowing hot air from a hair dryer on and around the aching ear can provide some relief. It opens up the blood flow, increases circulation and helps drain away any built up fluid, removing the stuffed ear feeling.

    I make my own infused oils to keep on hand for such reasons. However you can buy it already made. Just make sure anything you put in your ear, you warm it a bit.

    Mullien oil
    Garlic oil

    If you hum for about an hour the earache should go away. Helps also if you tilt your head towards the ear with an earache, and hold that position

    May take 1-2 hours but usually 1 hour of humming works for me

    I use hydrogen peroxide and a q-tip as well, I don't freeze it, haven't heard of that, I just do it *very* carefully. Probably a good reason for freezing though.

    Get a prescription for TobraDex. It says it is for eyes, but you can put it in your ear. Historically, I would have a couple of ear infections every year. Swimmer's ear. They were really bad. Finally, went to a very good ear, nose and throat doc. Prescribed TobraDex. Whenever I feel an earache coming on, I put a few drops of that in my ear and voila, it's all cleared up. It is leaps and bounds better than that crap they typically prescribe you when you have an ear infection. Seriously, I swear by this stuff.

    *seconds the warm olive oil*

    and milking your sinuses might help too
    It's an old chiropractic thing
    press hard on your forehead.. with your fingers centered and pull out to the sides to your hair line
    (I wish I could find pictures of this. would make it easier)
    repeat 5x
    then move your fingers under your eyes and milk outwards to your temples - right on top of your eye socket bones
    5x
    then put two fingers in front of each ear and two behind, at about the top of your ears and pressing firmly, pull downward to about the middle of the neck.
    this should drag crud from the Eustachian tubes down..
    5x

    wait a few minutes.. burn through a few tissues and repeat

    Any time I feel a cold or something coming on, I soak each ear with hydrogen peroxide for 5-10 minutes. It feels good and I think it helps.

    I know the stuff I bolded helps. I'm not saying the others don't, I've just never tried them. I also buy the Similasan ear drops (coupon at link) on occasion and they help, too.

    If I had ear ache and had to choose only one remedy of all suggested in this thread I'd take oleuropein; olive leaf extract

    I use it like once or twice a year. A couple of drops of that vs. ear wicks, because my ears have become infected/swollen and no medicine can go down in there, the whole side of my face swelling up, etc. But hey, what do ear doctors know. I'm sure you know more.

    If you want to warn people about something, it should be using hydrogen peroxide in ears. A friend of mine, who was the head of the Audiology dept in a university, cautioned me about using hyd peroxide, as it can damage your hearing.

    My wife is deaf in one ear; has had ongoing ear issues since childhood; growing up in home with two indoor chain smokers. She's been prescribed that product in the past. I've read the warnings that came with it and researched the lawsuits.

    tobramycin is neurotoxic, nephrotoxic, teratogenic, and suppresses immune response to fungal and viral infections; and can cause 'irreversible neuromuscular paralysis": These warnings are in "BLACK BOX".

    A black box warning is the strictest warning put in the labeling of prescription drugs or drug products by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug.


    To each his own.

    olive leaf works; its systemic oral treatment; nothing has to go in your ear hole... plus its neuroprotective, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, fights endothelial dysfunction, and attenuates liver damage.

    my only caveat is it can lower blood pressure, so I always take half a pill at a time as my blood pressure is already pretty low. It can also cause Herxheimer reaction... but that simply suggests that the patient is having an good response; microbes are dying en masse.

    I also have a tendency toward ear infection as I have narrow very hairy canals prone to capture moisture in the shower. Last night I was actually having that impending "ear ache" feeling. I took half an olive leaf. I'm fine this morning.

    I strongly suspect if more people knew about oleuropein and took self responsibility there would be far less demand for ear/nose/throat visits to state sanctioned and financed pharmaceutical salesmen; "doctors" as you call them.

    And most people know that due to our litigious society, that drug companies list every remote thing; regardless of likelihood.

    For me, I'll take a couple of drops of this every year, over very bad double ear infections, year after year. That said, I do put a diluted mixture of rubbing alcohol in my ears after showering. In a lot of cases, that keeps the problem from occurring. But, if it does, I'll use Tobradex. Damn straight. It is far better than the side of my face swelling, requiring antibiotics, ear wicks and ear drops that take over a week to work.

    But, if what you are doing works for you, congrats.

    Open your jaw as wide and as relaxed as you can, slightly move your jaw forward, rub DOWN from just below the ear to your throat. That helps to clear the Eustachian Tube. Pushing up would increase pressure in the ear so be sure to softly press and move fingers down. May or may not help you but it did for me when I was a kid with earaches.

    Thanks for all the advice. Havent had a chance to go get any herbal remedies. It still hurts. I wonder if flushing it out with that Debrox stuff did something. I did get some wax out but dang it's sore. Nothing is really helping.

    Warm virgin olive oil (3 or 4 drops) will should help.

    Hot water bottle - use the hottest water you can get from the tap ~115 degrees.



    Wrap the hot water bottle with a towel - make sure its comfortable! Adjust how full and how hot based on how it feels over a few minutes.

    Once you get the temp and firmness down, lay your bad ear on it and watch some cspan (cspan1, cspan2, cspan3 - doesnt matter).

    When I was a child, I had ear aches... I suppose now that I'm an adult I would add to this remedy to have your ear checked by a medical professional if symptoms persist.

    Not to terrify anyone, but 10 years ago I had a neighbor who had an ear ache for a week - it turned out to be an infection that later spread to his brain. He woke up in the night and was dizzy - he then fell to the floor and was gone the next day.

    Complete freak thing, but it made me reflect on the numerous ear aches I'd had in my life. I still maintain his widow's driveway in the winter...
