This is the time of the year when we are most prone to diseases and illnesses. And one of the most common health issue during winter is an ear infection.
The infection happens when fluid gets trapped in the middle ear because of a cold attack. The symptoms manifest as pain and a thick yellow fluid that the ear releases and they mostly occur in children. The pain and discomfort are sometimes unbearable.
However, there are some things you can do to treat this condition in a very short period of time. The treatment includes a sock and some Epsom salt. Make sure the sock is white, we’ll tell you why down below.
This Epsom Salt is extremely healthy and effective for pain and aches.
Just fill the foot part of the sock with Epsom salt ( around 1-1 ½ cups of it).
Now, open the sock, put the Epsom salt in it, and tie a knot to the neck of the sock in order to prevent spilling out of the Epsom salt.
Then, heat the salt-filled sock in a skillet over a medium-low heat and flip the sock a couple of times until you feel that the salt is warm.
The reason you need white sock is because the colored socks can easily burn when put to heat. You can heat the sock In the microwave as well, for 5 seconds.
After this, place the sock on the painful ear. The pain will be relieved in just a couple of minutes.
You can heat and reuse the same sock again.
