Remedies for earache
- A fairly well-known and very good remedy to reduce the discomfort in the ear canal is to use a tofu plaster. This is obtained by crushing with a fork of 1/4 kg of tofu, mixing it with white flour until a consistent dough is obtained. In the last phase, the dough is placed just behind the ear with a thickness of about 2 cm and covered with a cotton cloth.
- If there is suppuration, you should clean the ear with a gauze soaked in an infusion of chamomile or thyme. This technique is done with great care, being careful not to pull the leak inside.
- The last resort is to apply warm ginger compresses around the ears.
