How do you deal with earache?
I am looking for a home remedy for earache. I do not think my daughter has something really bad going on in her ear. She had a bit of trouble sleeping last night until I gave her Motrin. Today she is playing, running going on as normal but now and again I see her cup her hand over her right ear. When I ask her if it hurts I get a "yes" sometimes and a "no" at other times.
I remember as a kid my mother used to put something hot in and let me lie down on the "good" ear.
Anything you'd recommend?
Oh, I need to mention that we are all just getting over a bad cold/flu. My left ear is also sensitive when I swallow or cough... I think my daughter has the same problem as me.
