    Owie - hot water bottle to the side of the head any help (not too hot!). I've had 1 ear infection and it was sooooooooooo painful. You have my full sympathies!

    Warm a little baby oil and place it on a cotton bud in your ear ...

    Softens the wax

    I can't stand ear ache its the worst thing ... someone told me to try vodka in my ear & I did it I was that desperate. I found NOTHING but drops helped & once you got the right drops within a couple of hours it eases up so see your GP ... as well as tablets.

    Another one I was told that so so worked was a sock of salt heated in microwave, just hot enough to hold under your ear lie you infected ear onto the sock. Obviously not hot hot but as hot as you can stand it.

    Can you not get an emergency same day appointment?

    Really try Audiclean, I know its for ear wax but its a saline solution so it helps with infections to, salt water is great for helping heal.

    Ive been taking 1 ibuprofen and 2 paracetamol since Fri. Trying not to take so much of the paracetamol as it says do not take for longer than 3 days incase of addiction.

    I went to the chemist and talked to a pharmacist, she said that theres not much they can give as the doctor already prescribed me antibiotics, anything over the counter prob would be strong enough.
    She picked up a box of earex plus, it says relieves inflamation and fast relief from irritation and earache. Im desperate so giving it a go.
