Tips in Action: Ear Infection with a Cold

Problem: Do you have any home remedies to get rid of ear infection during cold?

Tip from Tia: Sad to say, this is becoming a common question this season. Having a cold can be bad, but adding an ear infection into the mix is down right miserable! A great home remedy to relieve the pain while treating the infection is using olive oil. Heat a spoon with warm water. Then pour a small amount of olive oil onto the spoon. Make sure it’s not too hot and drizzle into the ear. (Having a helping hand, while you lay down is easiest) Let the oil run in the canal for a few minutes. Watch your balance before getting up, and have a paper towel close by to catch what runs back out.

Then, use a heating pad throughout the day. Place it behind the infected ear. This will help with swelling and loosen and thin the mucus inside the ear.

Using over the counter medicine? Get one with an expectorant. that will help break up the blockage as well.
