When your child has an earache, you just want to make them feel better as fast as you can. But what if you can’t get in to see your physician?

There are natural formulas available that contain all-natural ingredients known to help relieve the symptoms of an earache, whether you can’t get to the doctor until Monday or are interested in trying an alternative approach.

Earache 101


An earache is pain within the ear caused by a buildup of fluid trapped within the ear, applying pressure to the eardrum. Before you decide on a treatment for your child, it's important to know the exact cause of their earache. An earache can either be a sign of an infection, a blocked Eustachian tube or it can be a symptom of a cold.

When your child’s earache is caused by an infection, it can trigger sharp, intense pain and be accompanied by symptoms such as loss of appetite, fever, irritability, poor sleep, vertigo, poor hearing or drainage.

The Eustachian tube is what connects the back of the nose to the middle ear, which opens and closes to keep air pressure within the ear balanced. A sinus or upper respiratory infection and even allergies can cause this tube to become blocked, resulting in pain. This is also the type of earache you often get when traveling by air plane.

Lastly, your child’s earache may be a symptom of a cold and not an infection. However, this type of earache can still be very painful and cause other symptoms, like trouble sleeping or a fever.

Treating an Earache Naturally


Now that you've identified the cause of your child's earache, it's time to consider treatments. While antibiotics are sometimes used, especially for younger children, earaches and ear infections will often go away on their own, without strong medication.
You can find natural remedies in the form of tablets or liquid, usually as ear drops. Ingredients commonly found within homeopathic remedies include chamomile to calm and soothe, belladonna for fever, Calcarea carbonica (also known as calc), arnica and pulsatilla for pain and echinacea to fight infection. These ingredients reduce the inflammation that causes the pain and helps your child feel better so they can sleep. Good, old fashioned rest does a lot to help, allowing the body to fight a present infection and reducing strain. A heating pad can be applied to relieve some pain and discomfort as well.

It’s important to pay attention to your child’s symptoms. If they persist for more than a couple of days and if discharge occurs, it’s important to take your child to their doctor for a second look. If your child suffers from frequent ear infections or earaches, it may be time to discuss it with their doctor.
