  • Need Quick Ear Infection Fix
    Hey, does anyone know of any quick ear infection remedies? My poor hubby has one and is not one to go to the emergency room, but is a BEAR right now. I can't stand this until Monday when the doctors open. Thanks. Michelle

    Every now and then I have some discomfort in one of my ears and use an OTC medication that works for me. It's called Murine Ear Drops. Made by the same people who make eye drops. You should be able to find it just about anywhere.

    There is a product OTC called Similasan, earache relief. Just bought it for my DD who gets ear aches quite often and she says it works.

    Old fashioned rememdy is olive oil dropped in ear with cotton ball in ear to keep the ear warm.

    I just used peroxide. DH says it reminds him of Pop Rocks when he was younger. LOL! I'll probably head in town tonight to buy one of hte other OTC things. But it's raining and the roads out here are a booger at night. :( Michelle

    I have ear infections and use a heating pad on my ear. It helps alot, you would be surprized.

    If it's an infection you want to stay away from the peroxide. Depending on the severity and location of the infection peroxide could make things worse.

    If it's waxy buildup rather than an infection the peroxide will do a fine job for you :)

    Hi, I hope I can help. If he is having a lot of ear pain, then I suggest that he takes some pain meds until he can get into the Dr.
    On the other hand, if he is having a lot of ear itching, here's your answer. Take warm water or body temperature, use one part white vinegar and about 5 parts warm water. Use an ear syringe and wash the ear out. This nutralizer the acid drainage or whatever that causes the itch. This really works. Do this two or three times daily. I used to have ear touble years ago and my ear specialist showed me how to stop the itching.

    HI there! I don't want you to be alarmed at all; but, I just returned from a 3 day hospital stay for an ear infection I let go too long.

    I, too, tried home remedies, but when the pain got too bad, I wound up in the ER on morphine!

    Of course, not all ear infections turn out like that (thank goodness!), but don't pussy foot around with it. Get him on some tylenol or motrin and then get him to the dr. asap.

    Antibiotics are the best thing for him and the safest!
