Ear infections happen when fluid gets trapped in the middle ear due to a cold attack. Its main symptoms include pain and a thick, yellow fluid released by the ear, and occur most commonly in children. The pain and discomfort due to ear infections are sometimes unbearable.
However, there is a simple and effective way to treat ear infections in no time! All you need for this natural treatment is a white sock and some Epsom salt.
Fill the foot part of the sock with Epsom salt, which is about 1-1 1/2 cups.
Open the sock, pour the salt, and tie a tight knot to the neck of the sock to prevent the salt from spilling out. For best effects, use a wide-mouthed funnel, and coarse salt.
Then, heat the salt-filled sock in a skillet over medium-low heat and flip the sock back and forth until the salts are warm.
Only use a white sock. You can also heat the sock in a microwave for 5 seconds.
Next, all you need to do is to place the sock against the painful ear, and it will relieve the pain in a few minutes. You can heat and reuse the same sock over and over again.
