Natural Remedies for Ear Infection

Natural Remedies for Ear Infection Ear infections are caused by bacteria or viruses
in the middle ear. Ear infections occur more often in children than adults. Some causes and contributing factors that
lead to ear infections are wax buildup, upper respiratory infections, food allergies, environmental
allergies, genetics, nutritional deficiencies and internal injuries. Some common signs that someone is suffering
from an ear infection are pain in the ear, tugging at the ear, difficulty sleeping, headache,
poor response to sounds, high fever and fluid draining from the ear. The ear is made up of three parts: outer,
middle and inner. An ear infection can occur in any of the three parts. Inner ear infections
are the most serious. It is important to treat an ear infection
to prevent complications, including damaging or rupturing the ear drum. There are many time-honored, simple and easy
home remedies that can help to get rid of the pain and other symptoms of an ear infection. 1. Salt Salt is probably the most readily available
home remedy. Heat up one cup of salt on a pan over low
heat for a few minutes. You can also heat it in a microwave or double-boiler. Place the hot salt on a cloth and seal the
open end with rubber band (or tie a knot). When it is bearably hot, lay down and put
the cloth on the affected ear for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat this remedy daily as many times as
needed. The heat generated from the sock will help
draw out fluid from the ear and relieve swelling and pain. As an alternative, you can use one cup of
rice in the same manner described above. 2. Garlic Garlic has antimicrobial properties and natural
pain relieving qualities, making it highly effective in the treatment of ear infections.
There are a few ways to use garlic as a home treatment. Make garlic oil by cooking two garlic cloves
in two tablespoons of sesame oil or mustard oil until it turns blackish. Strain the solution. When it is bearably hot,
use two to four drops of this oil in the infected ear as ear drops. Alternatively, you can also boil two or three
fresh garlic cloves in water for five minutes, then crush them and add some salt. Put the mixture in a clean cloth and place
it against the affected ear. Consuming two to three cloves of raw garlic
daily also helps speed up the healing process. 3. Apple Cider Vinegar To get rid of the fungus that may be causing
the ear infection, apple cider vinegar is a good option. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with an equal
amount of water or alcohol. Soak a cotton ball in the solution. Put the cotton ball in your ear like a plug
and leave it for about five minutes. Remove the cotton ball and lay down on your
opposite side to drain the liquid from the ear. Use a hair dryer to dry your ear as much
as possible. 4. Olive Oil One of the main causes of an ear infection
is wax in the ear catching some fungal or bacterial growth leading to a blockage in
the Eustachian tubes. You can easily clear the obstruction with the help of olive oil. Warm some olive oil slightly. Put a few drops
of the warm oil into the infected ear. The oil will cause the wax to soften. Remove
the infected wax with cotton-tipped swabs. Be careful not to put the swab too far in
the ear or you might damage the eardrum. If you like the video, give it a thumbs†up

  16. Use your own urine, your urine has antibodies that fight off infection just pee in a cup take a eye dropper and drop 3-4 drops in ear and itll make u feel 1000x better. You must use your own urine and make sure you do not have a UTI

  17. So, if I’m having trouble sleeping, and having ear pain, but no fever… Is it just a earache? Because it’s been around two days and I’ve only faced two things on this list
    – Tugging at the ear
    – Trouble sleeping
    So is it just a regular earache?

  18. My doctor told me the best way to get rid of excess ear wax is by putting a few drops of olive oil in your ear 3 x for one day, and then flush it out the next day with warm water in a syringe. Hope this helps some of you!

  19. NOT A HOME REMEDY – BUT THIS WORKED FOR ME — BRULIDINE CREAM. I HAD SWIMMERS EAR FOR OVER 10 YEARS. ON THE PACKET IT SAYS THAT IT IS FOR OUTER EAR INFECTIONS, IS ACTIVE IN PUSS AND BLOOD — IS ANTISEPTIC AND ANTIBACTERIAL. Another one – is TCP – diluted as it will burn. I do half and half now and again for cloggy ears. Brulidine is around £4.00 a tube and takes the itch away real fast.

  20. Well I eat garlic about 3-4 times a week and never had an ear infection. My daughter on the other hand has one now and we are trying this remedy I really hope it works
