How to Cure and Relief Bad Earache easily at home with Rice! This Remedy Really Works on Terrible Earache!! (remedies)

Updated on June 17, 2015

Super Easy and Fast Relief!

My boyfriend was up last night with terrible pain in his ear and nothing seemed to help so I did look into internet if I could find anything to help him.

It seems like there is all types of weird remedies out there from breast milk to vodka but many readers seemed to like the rice-in-the-sock method. So how do you do it? Nobody told me what type of rice it should be or if it should be cooked or not but I assumed not. All I had was white instant rice so I spooned it dry and uncooked to fill a sock. I think I used about 1 1/2 cups of rice, you need enough to make a "pillow" to cover the infected ear.

Next you simply tie the sock in a not and place it to microwave. I used 40 seconds and sock came out steaming hot. It depends on your microwave and how hot you want the rice to decide your perfect "cook" time.

First sock was too hot to place directly to his ear but even under it he said it was helping. In few minutes he could cover his whole ear with the sock and fell asleep almost immediately. Apparently rice softens and "steams" in the microwave and that soothing heat helps to ease the pain. His ear did drain quite a bit before the night was over. In the morning he told me the pain was completely gone.

Just make sure the rice is not too hot and burn the air but what an easy and fast way to help with this horrible condition! And best of all most of us always have the ingredients at hand. Why not give it a try, you have nothing to lose but the pain!

Did you find this remedy helpful?
