Mom shares simple home remedy for child’s ear infection – brilliant hack goes viral


What I’m about to share with you, is a coveted family secret given to my mom from aunt Mer.

As a child/ teen and now adult, with ears prone to infections and broken eardrums. I use this all the time.

Your child ever wake up screaming in pain of an ear infection? 

Because it takes 30 minutes for pain meds to kick in, this is the handiest trick you will ever learn. 

What to do,

1. Take a face cloth and heat it up in water as hot as your hands can stand, and wring the water out.

 2. Place the hot wet face cloth in a mug. 

3. Place mug in the microwave for 20 seconds until the cup is warm and cloth is burning hot.. 

4. Place open end of mug on your child’s head, around the ear- being careful the hot cloth does not touch your child’s ear. 


The pressure from the mug, will help relieve the pressure built up in the ear- VOILA- back to sleep and calmed /not crying and then the pain meds will kick in. 

You are welcome.

Well, I’m certainly going to pass this on! What a great thing to know.

If you have a child, or know someone who does, share this article on Facebook to spread something that could help thousands of parents!
