We have 5 children and they all had ear problems growing up. We have used a product called Ear Ease for over 20 years that is awesome. It is a special hot water bottle that you fill with hot water and hold around the ear. It heats up the middle ear where the tube is that gets plugged when there is an infection, and opens it up. When it opens, the pain goes away instantly. We take them with us every time we fly. We got ours as a gift years ago but just searched online and bought three more for my daughters who are 2 year old. I wish they sold these in stores. What a God send when you or your child have ear pain.

I put two drops of pure tea tree oil in my ear every 4 to 6 hours and the earache started to clear in one day! It's natural and has an antibiotic property.
