  • Tylenol or motrin for kids, any kind of pain reliever, My son loves a heating pad on his ear it makes him feel so much better.

  • Heating pad!!! I get ear infections all the time, and the heat from the heating pad helps soothe the pain. Good luck ear infections are no fun!!

  • give alot of the numbing drops and rest, my sons both had these and after a very long day they started feeling better, I even took a warm washcloth(warmed in the mic) and laid it over the ear after drops were applied hand in ther the pain comes on fast but will also reside quickly once the meds get to them.
