“The old mothers used to put onions on the babys ear when it had earache. That is not surprising, when we see all the pains and aches belonging to this remedy (Allium cepa). In the household where a medicine case is kept, Pulsatilla is the standard remedy for earache, and it is true that only occasionally has a doctor to be sent for.
Pulsatilla has such a strong affinity for the ear that it will cure earache in almost all sensitive children who cry pitifully. But those who are snappish, who are never suited, who will throw away something they have asked for, and slap the nurse in the face, must have Chamomilla. With Pulsatilla, Chamomilla and Allium cepa you can cure the majority of earaches in children.” – KENT.
(There is another very effective remedy for earache, especially where mastoid trouble threatens – Hepar. – ED).
