  • Hold a hot water bottle (or heat pack) to your ear, laying on the heat source like a pillow.

    It's not a sure-fire cure, some things just need medical attention, but it can definitely ease the pain.

  • wet a washcloth with really warm water wring it out and hold it against your ear and neck for a minute. that usually helps my hubby, he has a lot of ear problems.

  • My sister tried this over the counter drops. I don't remember what it is called. She said it worked great. But I just use the old fashioned hot water bottle on your ear.

  • Similisan ear drops work. Sounds like sinus drainage. Take some garlic pills. I prefer the odorless liquid caps. Place a heating pad, hot wash cloth or use a hair dryer on your ear.
