  1. Garlic oil. That’s right, people pour garlic oil into their ear canal to try to ease the pain and get rid of an infection.
  2. Mashed potatoes…in a sock. Yes, you read that right. An old ear infection remedy is to place mashed potatoes in a sock and rest it on the infected ear. Think hot compress…. but edible. Now, I’m sure that microwavable heating pads do the trick so we can leave the mashed potatoes on the table.
  3. Onion juice. It doesn’t have any scientific proof to cure ear infections, but onions do have anti-inflammatory properties. Warming up an onion to 450 degrees F for about 15 minutes will produce a juicy onion.


So, there you have it. 3 questionable at-home remedies for ear infections. But if I were you, I’d go with the scientifically tried and true ingredients in EAR PAIN MD.
