Do you have a primary care doctor? (Non-maternity care)

I read somewhere garlic oil.. you can enfuse a bit of olive oil with a crushed garlic clove then strain the oil into a bowl or something and toss the garlic, use a dropper and put 1-3 drops in each ear.. I've never actually tried it tho.. also I read vinegar (1-3 drops)....

I'm up too with horrible ear pain:( try warm olive oil with a piece if a cotton ball to help hold it in. Warm wash cloth or heating pad. Hope you feel better soon:)

Put 2 tablespoons of salt (plain table salt) in a folded wet rag. Heat up the rag in the microwave until it's hot. Then lay the infected side on the rag. Take a short nap. May have to repeat a few times because it cools, but it DOES work! My sister had 1 last month and I had her do all that. By the 3rd time, she said some colored liquid was practically pouring out her ear. I told her that was the infection....Hehe, I type too much. Hope you feel better!

 I've had SEVERAL this pregnancy! So freaking weird! I'm currently taking left over antibiotic ear drops cause mine hurts. :/  I wish i new some natural stuff that worked.  I was told to make sure and keep the inner ear DRY.  so no showers at night time. keep wet hair up from that side so it can dry out.
