For the pain:
- slice onion, put it in some cloth, cover the ear and let the onion juice do the job ... you can put over some warmer
- dry fry chamomile in the pan, put them in a cloth and cover the ear
Also great for treating earache:
- grated garlic (put it in some cloth and tape glue it behind the ear - ear shell)
- essential oil of basil (dilute it with some basic oil, a few drops, rub behind the ear)
There are also some homeopathic and anthroposophic remedies that work great for our family.
Try to find out from where the pain comes - is it really the ear or maybe from somewhere else (teeth, ...).
