  • So i was sick on friday and both my ears wont pop, i finaly popped the left but the right one is even more stuck and is now in pain! Like a deep pain in my ear. Ive tried everything and nothing works...what do i do?? :(Try this: Plug the good ear with your finger, then hold your nose and blow gently. This should equalize the pressure in both ears. The key is to keep the good ear plugged so no air can escape.

  • Seeing you've developed this after you've been sick.. its probably an ear infection. The following is what I used to use for ear infections in my daughter who was prone to them (this avoided her having to get gromets) and works better then antibiotics.. Get a garlic clove and crush it. put the crushed garlic into a tablespoon of warm olive oil (or vegetable oil). Leave for 2-12 hrs (best left in warm place eg windowsill). Strain throu some muslin or piece of cotton material (eg a piece of old pillow case) to remove any pieces of garlic. Eardrop the oil into the ear and keeping ear up, massage just below the ear to get garlic oil in deeper. Use this oil a couple of times per day. The following if its an ear infection usually works very fast and ear should be better within 1-3 days).
