  • we use candles from our local gnc (general nutrition center)..they state "candling is a home remedy and has not been approved by the FDA, Manufacturer, Wholesaler, Retailer or Vendors"..but we have used them for years and they will draw out the wax..the proxcide remedy works too but the candles will help clean out the wax..hope you get to feeling better soon

  • I sell an awesome product that is good for ears and many other infections too! It can be put into the ears a few drops. then lie down with your ear to the ceiling for 15 minutes and let it drain down inside the ear. The Silver sheild should be used 2 or 3 times in a day for relief every 6 hours! Also if you need to try something while you wait for your order just chpo up a garlic and put into some olive oil that is bearly warm and let it sit for a few minutes then drain the garlic out and apply a few drops to your ear just like the Silver Sheild! God Bless!

  • Could the pain be in your jaw and radiating up? I had a really bad tooth (needed root canal) and I didn't realize it b/c the pain was just in my jaw and ear. Hurt like the dickens, but the teeth themselves weren't bothering me much...

  • Take lots of garlic tablets and vit. C. You can also use a natural oil on cotton for earaches. PM me if you want to know how to get this oil.
