Homeopathic Remedies for Ear Pain

Homeopathic Remedies for Ear painEar pain or an earache that persists needs medical intervention. Earache, or Otalgia in medical terms, usually occurs because of two reasons. The first is a local cause due to a problem within the ear. The local cause is mainly an infection of the middle ear (Otitis Media). The second reason is the referred cause or pain that does not start in the ear itself but is referred secondarily to the ear through some primary problem in another part of the body.  Here, the primary problem can be in the teeth (dental caries, cutting the wisdom tooth) or throat infection (Tonsillitis) and the pain through them extends to the ear. Homeopathic medicines for ear pain offer a complete cure by treating the root cause of the condition. Prepared from natural substances, these remedies for ear pain have zero side effects and offer a complete cure for ear pain.

Top natural Homeopathic Medicines for Ear Pain

1. Belladona: For Tearing Earache or Ear Pain

Belladonna is one of the top natural remedies for ear pain. Belladonna is very beneficial for relief from various types of ear pain like throbbing and tearing pain. This medicine is the ideal remedy for ear pain arising from acute inflammation of the middle ear (Otitis Media). The patient experiences a pain that appears very deep-rooted. High fever may also accompany earache. Throat infection with pain in throat radiating to the ear is also best treated with Belladonna.

2. Chamomilla: For Relief from Severe Earache

Chamomilla is a natural medicine of great help in providing relief from severe ear pain. Chamomilla works very well as a pain reliever when the earache is very acute. The patient seems to be oversensitive to pain. Ear ache with extreme mental agitation is, thus, best treated with Chamomilla. The pain may be worse in cold air or at night time. Chamomilla can also be given to children who turn irritable due to earache and who get relief if they are carried.

3. Verbascum Thapsus: For Ear Pain of Nerve Origin

Verbascum Thapsus is the best medicine for ear pain of nerve origin. Verbascum Thapsus is very beneficial for the treatment of ear ache that is part of the facial pain of nerve origin (Trigeminal Neuralgia). The pain is more pronounced on the left side and gets worse with the slightest of movement. The ear is always dry within. Verbascum Thapsus is popularly known as Mullein Oil and can also be administered as ear drops on the affected side of the ear along with internal usage.

4. Pulsatilla: For Pain with Thick Discharge from Ear

Pulsatilla is the ideal natural medicine for ear pain accompanied by a thick discharge from the ear. The patient may experience hardness of hearing with ear pain. The ear feels heavy and stuffed up. Most of the times, the discharge is green in colour and is of a non-irritating nature. Open air may provide relief from earache.

5. Hepar Sulph & Psorinum: For Ear Pain with Pus-like Discharge

In this condition, the top two medicines for ear pain are Hepar Sul and Psorinum. The most suitable candidates for Hepar Sulph are those suffering from ear pain with pus-like discharge from the ear. Hepar Sulph is ideal for treating earache due to a middle ear infection. The person cannot bear the ear to be touched even slightly as it worsens the pain. Fever with chill may present itself along with earache. Hepar Sulph is also the best medicine when the earaches more by the slightest exposure to cold air. Psorinum is indicated when discharges are very fetid in odor.

6. Belladonna, Hepar Sulph, Pulsatilla: For Earache due to Middle Ear Infection

When middle ear is affected, the top remedies for ear pain are Belladonna, Hepar Sul and Pulsatilla. Earache due to middle ear infection may be accompanied by impaired hearing, fever and discharge (pus) from ear. Belladonna is a useful medicine for ear pain in the very beginning stages of ear infection. Belladonna can be taken when the earache of severe throbbing nature is present. The person needing Belladonna may also have a high fever with an earache. The body feels extremely hot. Hepar Sulph is an ideal natural medicine for earache where the pain in the ear is accompanied by pus-like discharge from the ear. The discharge is most of the times offensive. This usually occurs in the ear infection cases that have progressed to advanced stages. Fever with chills may be present along with an earache. The ear is very sensitive to touch.  The patient requiring Hepar Sulph may complain that earache gets worse in cold air. Pulsatilla is another medicine of great help to cure pain in the ear that is accompanied by a thick discharge from the ear. A greenish discharge oozes out of the ear. The person requiring natural remedy Pulsatilla may find relief in the open air.

7. Belladonna & Phytolacca: For Ear Pain due to Throat Infection

The top two medicines for ear pain associated with throat infection are Belladonna and Phytolacca. Belladonna is the perfect remedy for pain in the throat that extends to the ear. The earache is throbbing and intensive in nature. High fever with extreme heat may accompany earache.
Lachesis is preferred when the earache is left-sided. Pain in throat extends to the left ear. Swallowing of food may worsen the pain. Phytolacca, on the other hand, is the best natural remedy for ear pain on the right side. Phytollaca thus suits patients when the throat pain radiates to the right ear. The pain may be shooting in nature. Here, too, swallowing of food worsens the pain in the ear.

8. Plantago & Merc Sol: For Ear Pain due to Dental Problems

The top two medicines for ear pain due to dental problems are Plantago and Merc Sol. Plantago is one of the best remedies for ear pain that forms the first line of treatment for cases of earache associated with toothache. Plantago can be used by all those persons in whom the pain in teeth extends to the ear. Noise may be a factor worsening the earache and toothache in a few cases requiring Plantago.
Merc Sol is also very effective as a remedy when the earache is due to dental troubles. Here, the earache is mainly worse at night. Along with earache, yellow or blood-tinged discharge may come out of the ear. The patient may also narrate increased salivation from mouth.

9. Arnica: For Earache following Injury

Arnica is the top natural medicine for ear pain that follows an injury. The injury may be caused by any blow or while clearing the ear with earbuds. Arnica holds a great promise in providing relief from earache and is considered an ideal medicine for earache after injury.

  1. Hi,

    I am experiencing ear pain on the left ear. I also have sensitive teeth on the left upper side and sometimes hip pain on the left side. The ear pain usually gets worse at night when I lay down to go to sleep. It is sometimes alleviated by heat packs. Most of the time I can’t go to sleep and have to take ibuprofen and melatonin.

    The pain is a sharp jab that comes and goes like a labor contraction but is not regular.

    Please help! I have tried hypericum, chamomilla, belladonna and spigelia without any relief. I am going to try others but it difficult to keep purchasing remedies without get relief.

    Thank you.

    My son is having pain in ear because of cold what can I give him he is 14

  13. Sir,
    I am suffering from ear pain since 2013. Initially it was once or twice in a year but now it has increased manifolds and it is now on regular basis. It starts with swelling behind the earlobe and on the cheek .The eyes sometimes become red or small red patches appear in the eyes. The eyes start watering while opening and the pain becomes unbearable. This episode goes on for one or two days and this becomes worst during this period if I travel on bike. Maybe due to wind effect.
    Sir I had consulted the ENT surgeon for this. He referred for X-Ray and Ultrasound for head and Parotid gland respectively. The X-ray was normal but ultrasound shows lymph nodes presence is more and the doctor advised surgery of both ear. But I consulted homeopathic clinic and taken three months medicine and was feeling better.Suddenly the doctor has shifted to some other town and I do not know what medicine he was giving.
    I request you Sir to kindly review my case and guide me for the appropriate medicine which I can take from for curing this. I shall be thankful to you for this deed.
    Thanks and best regards.

    • Dr. Sharma,
      I had an ear infection, worse in left ear. I had been using earbuds for phone clients for a year. I took a rx augmentin. Md said infection was clear, fluid cleared,but left ear still inflamed. She rx antibiotic ear drops. I have occasional fleeting pain in left ear. In addition, the outside of my ears hurt if I sleep on them. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
