ear infections!

My best friend had horrible recurring ear infections and went to an ENT
this is the regimen he gave her. Works SERIOUSLY.


No q-tips,Once a week pour a little peroxide in each ear let sit a minute or two then turn head over and empty repeat on other side... my gramma used to call this "boiling your ears out" what? we are country!

Then at first sign of ear infection use a mixture of half peroxide and half distilled vinegar. Sometimes this is a bit uncomfortable/painful at the first dose but do it twice a day and within 24 hours I always see improvement. This has worked
when my nephews ear was nearly swollen shut.

Lice- tea tree oil (I poor a small bottle in a full bottle of cheap shampoo)
Shake before applying then condition and use a pincomb.
This worked after over a month of trying over the counter stuff.
There is also a preventative spray that is a mix of a few oils that is supposed to ward off lice. Parents spray it on before school etc...

True
Back when this thread was new, I also put in a home remedy for lice. The homemade stuff always seems to be more reliable than the expensive rid brand.

I don't know if this one has been mentioned, but use toothpaste on a pimple to get it to heal quickly. You'll also have a minty fresh face too.

It really does work.

Had verrucas on my foot and tried tea tree oil mixed with bergamot oil and it did the trick!

Never heard this one before but definitely sounds like an easy one to try


Tea bags that have been seeped in boiling water and allowed to cool off are good to use on extraction sites when you have a tooth pulled.

Just remembered a few...

Wood splinters... cut a tony square of raw bacon... small enough to fit on a bandaid (the pad area) cover the splinter with bacon and cover bacon with bandaid... in the morning the splinter with usually be out chilling on the bacon... may take two days though,so you may have to switch bandaids and bacon occasionally... much better than trying to dig a splinter out of a screaming kids foot or hand!


Another,
Bee stings
Take the tobacco out of a cigarette make a paste with a little water (or spit if you dont mind lol)
apply to site of sting and bandage.. with draw the stinger and pain out.

crushing flaxseed works the same...


Have more will be back as I recall!

The tobacco thing works! When I was about 11 years old I sat on a wasp and the damn thing kept stinging me over and over again. I had probably 8 or 9 stings by time my parents figured out what had me screaming. My dad did the tobacco remedy and I thought it was disgusting at the time but it really worked.

Same thing kinda happened to me... flew up my long skirt and got me.
I keep remembering stuff my mom did when I was a kid...Oh!

This one is a little odd and I have never done it myself but my mom suggested to my cousin when her kid had a heavy nosebleed...
I dont even know if people keep heavy metal scissors in their houses anymore this was probably 15 years ago!

You lean forward NOT BACK holding whatever you are using to catch the blood to the nose and have someone place a pair of heavy metal scissors on your upper back right below the nape of your neck.... on fat chicks this is gonna be the Dowagers Hump area... heheh.... they said it worked...
Maybe has something to do with the metal??I know alot of metals are said to have healing properties. Or maybe it is a diversion of attention for the kid? the have to stay still and concentrate on not letting the scissors fall off? I dunno but its worth a try I guess.

One more..
When cutting dogs nails... cigarette ash can be used as styptic...If you cut it a bit too short pack it with cigarette ashes...Another trick from my mom... seen her do it with her dog before..

Mud or baking soda paste also work.

The vinegar's ph effects the stickiness of the eggs/nits- cover the hair in the coconut conditioner and use a nit comb to comb out- rinse in vinegar water again - then rinse vinegar out with water.

Anything such as pillows, stuffed toys, bedding, etc that can't be washed in hot water and baked in a dryer for 20 minutes or more should instead be sealed up in plastic bags sealed up airtight for at least two weeks. The lice and any subsequent hatchings all smother in that time frame.


I hope I just saved someone hundreds of dollars and months of angst with this post
As a preventative measure Rosemary oil is fantastic, lice hate rosemary apparently . Weleda brand is available at whole paycheck and lasts forever. When I was a camp counselor I would dab a teeny bit on my scalp behind my years and at the nape of my neck every morning.

Applying Aloe Vera or cucumber also works really well to alleviate the sunburn.

if you have problems with eyeliners not staying in place and go away during the day, hold a lighter and warm it up for 2-3 sec. it works wonders.
Thank you for sharing this, I have been struggling with my eyeliner as well. I will try this
