3% Hydrogen Peroxide is the best thing to clear up ear infections, swimmers ear, kills bacteria, and over all cleaning out the ears, ect. I remember my grandma using it on me as a kid. It cleared up a lingering ear infection. Doc wanted to put tubes in. Never had another ear infection. I use on my girls and they never have had ear infections.
Erase earaches with garlic.....To cure one fast, just place two drops of warm garlic oil into your aching ear twice daily for five days. This simple treatment can clear up ear infections faster than prescription meds. To whip up your own garlic oil gently simmer three cloves of crushed garlic in a half a cup of extra virgin olive oil for two minutes, strain, then refrigerate for up to two weeks
