Ear infection occurs due to bacteria and viruses in the middle ear and children are more likely to have it than adults. The three parts of the ear are: outer, middle and inner and each one is important in the process of hearing.

Neglecting ear infection can only cause some complications as damaged or ruptured eardrum or even hearing loss.
The most common symptoms of ear infection:
- poor response to sounds,
- tugging at the ear,
- fluid drainage from the ear,
- problems with sleeping,

These are the top 10 remedies how to cure an ear infection naturally in only 1 day
Heat some salt in a pan at low temperature for few minutes, using double-boiler or microwave.
Put the warm salt in a cloth and close it tightly. Put the cloth on the ear for 5-10 minutes. The heat helps the liquid to come out from the ear and also alleviates the pain and the swelling. Repeat this several times in the day.
You can also try it this with rice.
Garlic has also proven to reduce the pain of ear infection.
Take two garlic cloves in mustard or sesame and cook them until they become brownish and obtain the garlic oil. Let it cool off a bit and then apply 4 drops of the oil in the painful ear.
You can also take 2-3 fresh garlic cloves and boil them for 5 minutes and then crush them and add some salt. Put the mixture in a clean cloth and place it on the infected ear.
Consuming 2-3 gloves of garlic every day can accelerate the healing process.
Basil is used to prevent pain and infections
Crush 4-5 basil leaves and extract the juice from them. Apply it directly around the infected ear carefully to prevent the juice to get into the ear canal.
