Does anyone out there get severe outer ear infections? I have one now and get them pretty often especially when the humidity is high or I travel to high humidity states or islands. The ear antibiotic drops only do so much and the decongestants. Without a temp, my general practitioner wont' give me an oral antibiotic. Any others get these VERY painful earaches? Some natural remedies would be welcomed. Thank you

My Mom use to blow cigarette smoke in my ears when I would get ear infections, which I use to get constantly. I have done it for my kids and grandkids also. It has always worked for me.

I know it sounds weird, but have someone blow cigarette smoke in your ear if you can handle it.. My mom did it to me a couple times, she found it in an old baby book.. I have had those before they hurt so bad!! I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you SadieMae08. Never tried that :) I am still in horrible pain today and waiting for the doctor to call back.
