I have had an earache for about 4 to 5 days now and it won't go away. I have tried Advil and Tylenol. I have tried warm compresses, hot showers and olive oil in the ear. I don't want to go to the doctor for something minor like this but it is really aggrevating me. Any suggestions? I have seasonal allergies and I am already taking an allergy med and a decongestant, so, obviously those aren't helping if it is allergy related. Any ideas, old time remedies???

after 4-5 days it's time to see the doc... obviously hearing loss is worst case scenario, but some infections just aren't going away with out help. Untreated infections of any kind can cause other health issues. Better safe then sorry if it's been this long. Just b/c you go to the doc doesn't mean you NEED an antibiotic, but at least they can look in your ear an see what the deal is.
