Garlic or Onion can provide fast relief from an earache and help get rid of infection and pain. Both have antibiotic & analgesic properties. Mix 1T of lukewarm Olive oil with the juice of 1 garlic clove or some onion. Dip a cotton bud in the mixture and apply 2-3 drops to ears from the saturated cotton bud. Place cotton bud firmly in the ear that hurts. If you do not have garlic, onion juice can be used instead due to its antiseptic properties. If you also happen to have ginger, grate some in the mixture and strain. Ginger is a wonderful pain killer.
