Ear pain is not only for children, but also for adults. Ear infections usually disappear on their own and do not require special medical care. The following methods can help people to relieve ear pain safely and effectively at home. The instruments for ear examination in hospitals include aural ear speculum, Hartmann ear speculum and ear specula disperser, etc.



1. Cold Compress or Hot Compress

Generally when ear pain occurs in winter, most of it is because the ear is not well protected. It is easy for children to have ear frostbite and swelling, not only with pain, but also accompanied by redness, swelling and itching, which is very uncomfortable. Hot towels are a quick way to relieve pain. Soak the towel in hot water for a while, then put it to the ears. Soak again when the temperature drops. Repeating several times can relieve the ear pain. This method is most suitable for ear frostbite or injury caused by external factors.


If it is ice compress, put an ice bag or an ice towel on the ear. About 10 minutes each time can alleviate the pain.



2. Garlic

Garlic has analgesic effect and helps relieve earache. Sometimes when there is ear inflammation or infection and other conditions, soak garlic slices with boiled water and apply it to the infected part of the ear when it is softened. It is best to cover with cotton ball or disinfectant cloth, which can effectively relieve the pain and suck out the exudate from the infected area.


Or heat a teaspoon of minced garlic with 2 tbsp sesame oil. Cool the sesame oil and filter. Apply 2 to 3 drops of oil on the ear when it is in pain.

3. Basil Leaf

Basil leaf has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. It is also a good material for the treatment of ear pain. Take basil leaf extract and drop a few drops in the ear. Repeat once per day.



4. Olive Oil

Olive oil has been used as a folk therapy for earache. It is safe and effective when small drops of warm olive oil are getting into the ear. Put 3 or 4 drops of warm olive oil into the ear once a day for several days until the pain disappears.



5. Essential Oil

(1) Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has strong antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects. Mix 2 drops of tea tree oil into 4 drops of warm olive oil, then put the mixture in the ear to relieve the earache.


(2) Lavender Essential Oil Fumigation

Lavender essential oil fumigation is an all-round head fumigation. Take Eucalyptus essential oil and a few drops of lavender together into boiling water, then fumigate the head completely. It is better to apply a special fumatorium. Also a small bucket or water basin can take place if there is no fumatorium. Remember to cover the head with a very absorbent towel, and the amount of boiling water should be appropriate. Take care not to scald the head.



6. Apple Vinegar

Apple vinegar can change the pH value of the ear canal to sterilize. Organic apple vinegar is preferred.



7. Salt

Salt helps reduce inflammation in the ear canal. Heat a teaspoon of salt for a few minutes and put it into the ear for about 10 minutes with a cotton wool.



8. Painkillers

Acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen can usually relieve earache.



9. Chewing Gum

If people are on board or drive at a high altitude, their ears will ache due to the change of air pressure. Chewing some gum can help reduce the pressure and relieve the pain symptoms.


Earaches usually improve on their own or gradually improve under home care, but it is also necessary to be alert to the symptoms. Consult a doctor if the following situations occur. Ear speculum can be applied to examine inner ear problems. For example, there is fluid (such as pus or blood) oozing from the ear, a high fever, headache or dizziness, something stuck in the ear, sharp pain in the ear and sudden absence of sound (which may mean rupture of the tympanic membrane), deterioration of symptoms, etc. Different ear speculum types, such as otoscope speculum and Lempert endaural speculum, can also be utilized to examine ears.


The ear is a relatively fragile body organ, and be careful to protect the ear at ordinary times.
