Home Remedies For Ear Infections

It is very important to pay attention to ear infection in early stage. You can have inner ear infection or middle ear infection or outer ear infection with different symptoms.

Inflamed Ear

  • Take Vitamin C to help boost the immune system and fight infection. Zinc reduces ear infection.
  • Hold your both nostrils closed and blow through your nose until you hear a pop.
  • Mix 1 tablespoon of milk with 1 tablespoon of olive oil or castor oil, then heat the combination in a nonaluminum pan.

Dose: Once the mixture has cooled off, put 4 drops into the inflamed ear every hour and gently plug it up with cotton. Be sure the drops are not too hot.

WARNING : If your ear infection is painful and persistent, get medical attention. You may have a serious condition that needs professional treatment.

Runny Ear Infection

  • You'll need to go to a good, old-fashioned Italian fish store for this remedy. Get the soft, transparent bone from a squid. Bake it until it turns black and crush it into a powder. Taken orally-½ teaspoon before breakfast and another ½ teaspoon before dinner-it is said to help clear up a runny ear infection.

Swimmer's Ear home remedies

Soon after swimming, if you've noticed that it hurts when you touch or move your ear, you may have an infection of the ear canal known as "swimmer's ear." These remedies may bring some relief.

  • Combine 1 drop of grapefruit extract, 1 drop of tea tree oil and 2 drops of olive oil, then put the mixture in your ear. Gently plug your ear with a cotton ball. This should help clear up the infection.
  • Take a sock, fill it with salt, microwave it until it is warm and tolerable to body. Lay your head on it. This may drain the fluid out.
  • To prevent infections, add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) of just-boiled water. Once the liquid is cool, store it in a bottle. Right after swimming, put 2 drops of the vinegar mixture in each ear. Plug each ear with a cotton ball and stay that way for about 10 minutes.
  • Put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in the ear.


  • Use drops of warm mineral oil to help loosen wax. Wash the wax out with an ear syringe and warm water. You can use garlic oil also. (Do not do this if you have you suspect a rupture eardrum or ear infection or there is a discharge from the ear.)
