Ear Infections

Ever wonder what to do for nasty ear infections. Especially on the weekend when the Dr. isn't in and your little ones wont sleep. Tabacco in the ear. Just a little bit. Take tabacco leaves or a can of chew, just a little bit put it in a sauce pan with a little water bring it to a simmer. Stir it up a little bit. Dip a cotton ball or for those smaller ears Q-tip. ( I have even done a spoon with just a little bit in the spoon when I haven't had a cotton ball or Q-tip) Set the cotton ball/Q-tip on the ear. (of course let it cool down if it is to hot. You do want it slightly warm though) Let it sit there for a minute. I can't gaurentee 100% because maybe it doesn't work for some but I would dare say 99%. Every time I have tried this on myself, husband or kids it has worked. Some how it draws out the infection and takes the pain away. Works Wonders.

  1. Seriously???

    Wish I knew this 5 years ago when my daughter was struggling with ear infections. I'll have to tuck it away for friends.
