Drink Fluids: Having your child drink plenty of fluids will help open the Eustachian tube and allow fluid to drain. Take Acetaminophen: If your baby is older than 6 months, acetaminophen (Tylenol) may help relieve the pain and fever. Check with your doctor on proper dosage and follow the instructions on the bottle. Use Warm Oil Drops: This should not be performed if your child has drainage from the ear, an existing ear injury, or if you suspect a ruptured eardrum. If all is clear, try a few drops of room temperature olive oil or sesame oil in the infected ear. Olive oil soothes the tightly stretched tissues of ear drum which in turn helps in reducing the pain and contains antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties that fight off bacteria and reduce inflammation. Apply a Warm compress: Heat can bring quick pain relief to the ear. Wet a face towel with warm water, wring it out, and apply it to your infected ear. Keep it there until the towel becomes cool. Keep Your Baby’s Head Elevated: Keeping the head slightly or fully elevated allows the sinus to drain better. For babies, place a pillow or two under the crib mattress so that the baby sleeps with the head inclined. Try Homeopathic Ear drops: Homeopathic ear drops containing extracts of ingredients such as garlic, mullein, lavender, and calendula may also help relieve inflammation and pain.
