I have had an ear infection for a few days now. Do these generally heal themselves over time?

A: I had an ear infection in both ears years ago, and as i was on holiday at the time I left it. It got much, much worse, to the point where the pain was intolerable and I couldn''t hear properly. It was as if I was under water, everything was quiet and muffled - and that lasted for 2 weeks, even after I did eventually start on the antibiotics. My ears still aren''t quite right, some ten years on. So I would suggest you definitely go to the doctor''s and get some antibiotics!

What is a good way to get rid of an ear infection if anyone knows anything to use thats good.?

You can use a warm compress, or you can warm an oil such as "sweet oil" (found at your local drug store) and drop it in the ear. You can also use Tylenol or Motrin until the pain subsides. It will take several days on its own to "heal"... sort of speak. Or you could make a dr appt and get on antibiotics and feel better within a few days. I usually just take the pain meds and eventually it goes away... if you go to ur chemist they will be...

Would a saline solution be any good to treat an outer ear infection?

A: OMG you need to see youre Doc before you fly. I have had a burst eardrum before and the pain is worse than childbirth! You definitely should go see a doctor. It''s not good to fly with an ear infection because of the pressure change. That would really hurt. Your doctor will give you an antibiotic and that will usually ease the pain up the first day, at least it always did when I had them a lot when I was younger. If not, it should be eased up before your flight. If you can''t get to a doctor before your flight, then trying a saline solution won''t hurt anything and might ease some of the pain, but also, I''ve found that regular inflammatory pain medicine like ibuprofin or advil helps to ease the pain too. Hope this...
