My kid and I both have one. Any good home cures? I think the sweet oil about has it whipped but I'm always looking for new ideas incase it happens again.

Without addressing the underlying cause (infection, cold, inner ear or outer ear) to be specific, I will be general.

I use peroxide for inner ear complaints (when the knob is not painful). Have for 40 years, as needed.

Half a dropper full in the ear, let it bubble and then drain. Some find it dries out the skin and can cause dryness/itching. If so, discontinue.

NEVER EVER use Bacitracin in the ear. I understand it can dause deafness or other problems.

A $1 bottle of peroxide is a must in my medical kit.

Just my experience without any medical qualifications. Posted for your reference and study.

Peroxide is great, I use it in my ears also. You shouldn't use alcohal, as it will dry everything out, but I am not a doctor. I also get alot of wax build up in my ears durring the winter months, when I start scuba diving in the spring the pressure changes on my estacian tubes push all the wax out and my ears feel much better.
