Home remedy for ear infection for external use:

As you could see on the previous page (Home-remedies-for-earache) the Onion/Garlic Plant-Family is deeply involved in the treatment of ear infections. They're so much useful herbal remedies for earache. I give here some other smelly garlic recipes:

garlicGarlic Poultice

  1. Boil 3-4 gloves of garlic in some water for a few minutes.
  2. Mash them
  3. and add a bit of salt.
  4. Wrap this poultice in a flannel cloth
  5. and place on the aching ear
  6. and fasten it with a woolen scarf or hat.

Leave this poultice on the painful ear until it is comfortable warm (about 30-40 minutes).

Fresh Garlic Compress:

Crush a fresh garlic clove, place it in a cotton handkerchief and put it on the aching ear for 20-30 minutes. If an unpleasant feeling turns op remove the compress immediately.

If you can't stand the smell of garlic, here you find some sweet-smelling options. I'm sure your child will like them:

roman camomileWarm Camomile Compress  (Matricaria chamomilla or Anthemis nobilis)

Fill camomile flowers in a thin, small, cotton child sock. Close it tightly with a string. Warm it up (e.g. with a hair dryer) and place it on and around the sick ear. You can leave it on for the whole night. It helps in the case of mild-middle earache.
A more simple solution is to use a camomile teabag.

plantago major

Common plantain (Plantago major) drop

Use a few drops of either fresh common plantain leaves juice or plantain tincture on a cotton wool swab and insert it in the opening of the ear. Leave it on a few hours, if it is comfortable.

Houseleek or Jupiter's beard (Sempervivum tectorum) drop

houseleekWhen you cut the succulent leaf of the plant a gel like moisture comes out (similar to Aloe). Put a few drops of the fresh juice (or a tincture) on some cotton wool, then make a plug to place in the opening of the ear for several hours.

If you are ALLERGIC to any of the HERBS or it's CONSTITUENTS (your skin gets burning or itching) remove them immediately and rinse the place with clean water.

Finally, an old home remedy, I'm sure you know it from your childhood:

saltWarm Salt Bag

Stuff a bigger cotton sock with salt, close it tightly with a string. Warm it up on the radiator or with a hair dryer until it is comfortable warm. Lie on with the painful ear. It is a nice feeling, ameliorates the pain, but doesn't have the power to combat an infection alone. It is a good complementary method together with other treatments (herbs, oils, homeopathy etc.). You can use instead of salt some rice or a warm water bottle on your painful ear.

A painful ear usually requires a WARM application, but seldom it desires COOLing. Trust your feeling! Use only methods convenient for you.
