Relieve excruciating ear infection pain in minutes!!

Both kids with very painful ear infections. Not had them both suffer at the same time before.

Crying out in pain and it takes the calpol 20-30 mins to kick in. The best way I can relieve their pain within a few minutes is………

Rinse a cloth or flannel under the hot tap the hottest your hands can stand and then ring all the water out. Quickly push it down into a cup and put it into the microwave for 30 seconds to Make the cloth inside red hot. Now lay your child down and press the cup onto the side of the head with the ear inside (don’t let the cloth touch the skin or it will burn!!) also pop something between the cup and the child’s shoulder so it doesn’t burn their shoulder.

ask them to lay still or keep them entertained if they are tiny children. Keep the cup close or pushed onto the ear for around 10 mins or longer, if you can keep them still longer (longer the better really or until the cup has gone cool) the heat inside the cup works by drawing out the infection inside and it can work better then antibiotics can. They may tell you it’s hot and making a crackling noise inside. This is a fantastic result as it means the infection is moving and being drawn out.

After I remove the cup, I use a syringe to drop a couple of drops of olive oil into the infected ear and then block in with some clean cotton wool. (Be sure not to put the syringe too close to the ear as you will push air into the ear canal causing excruciating pain for your child)

Leave this in and change cotton wool and add drops daily until you get to see a professional.

This can be repeated whenever your child is in severe pain but I would always advise to see a doctor and seek medical advice too and let them prescribe antibiotics to help the infection along and give them calpol for the pain in the mean time.
