Mom Shares Ear Ache Hack That's Gone Viral

December 13th, 2018

This time of year, people tend to suffer from stuffy noses, the flu, and other illnesses. While the symptoms of being sick can make an adult miserable, it is even worse for kids – and their parents. Sniffles and an earache can lead to a night without sleep for the whole family.

At the height of the winter, one mother shared her family’s home remedy for earaches to help others find relief.

Echo Featherstone learned her earache solution from her older relatives, who passed the home remedy down to the rest of the family.

Featherstone decided to make a Facebook post sharing the home remedy and how she learned it. According to Featherstone, the remedy was previously a family secret. She learned it from her mom, who had learned the trick from Aunt Mer.

Featherstone went on to let readers know that she has used this remedy hundreds of times, both for herself and her children. Throughout her life, Featherstone has been prone to ear infections as well as broken eardrums, but her method always provides pain relief.

Featherstone’s solution acts very quickly, making it a great alternative or supplement to pain medications that can take a half-hour to start working.

To complete the remedy, you don’t even have to head to the store for any last-minute supplies or medicine. You just need a face cloth, a mug, and a microwave.

Of course, for the best relief, you probably should combine this home remedy with actual medication, especially if your child feels miserable.

Start off by grabbing a face cloth, then heating it using hot water – as hot as you can bear to handle.

Wring out the water, then put the hot, wet cloth inside a mug. Put the whole thing in your microwave for 20 seconds. When you take it out, the cloth should be burning hot.

Now, put the open part of the mug on your child’s head, right by their ear. Make absolutely certain that the cloth doesn’t touch the skin or ear since it will be very hot and could cause burns.

According to Featherstone, the mug’s heat will relieve the pressure that has built up inside the ear. This should last long enough for you and your child to fall asleep without crying or being in pain. By the time you wake up, the pain medications will have begun working their magic.
