Earache

Earache is a common disorder. Who amongst us has not, at some point of time, suffered from the sheer misery of an earache? Earache can be caused due to various reasons like cold, enlarged adenoids, infection caused by swimming in polluted water, teething or wisdom tooth. Earache usually disappears quite quickly once it is treated but if it persists or keeps recurring over a period of time, it is best to see the doctor.
Symptoms
  • Pain and swelling in the ear.
  • Irritation, redness, itching and tenderness in the external ear.
  • Ringing sensation in the ears.
  • Sometimes, loss of hearing and foul smelling discharge from the ear.
  • Fever, when infection reaches the middle ear.




Earache
Boil about 150 ml of mustard oil on a medium flame. Then add 15 gms of alkanet roots (Ratin jot) to the boiling oil and allow them to burn in it. Filter when cold and bottle. When an earache occurs, put 2 drops of this oil in the ear to get immediate relief.
Earache
  • Alkanet roots (A herb easily available at the grocer's shop)
  • Mustard oil
Earache
  • Gulp down plenty of water as gulping helps the Eustachian tubes to open up.
  • Gargle with warm saline water.
  • Formation of a wax plug in the ear also causes earache. Soften the wax by using a solvent and then take an ear wash to flood out the gunk.
  • Gently massage the area behind the earlobe to loosen the wax or tug the earlobe while opening and closing your mouth.
  • Never poke things into the ear, particularly cotton wool buds or sticks.
  • Avoid coming in contact with people suffering from cold or cough.
Other Remedies
Earache
  • Heat some sesame oil along with some garlic. Strain and use warm as ear drops.
  • Extract the juice of some basil (Tulsi) leaves by crushing the leaves. Pour 3 drops in each ear.
