This may sound crazy – but it works!
Take a clove of fresh garlic peel it and cut a piece that will fit comfortably in the outer ear. You want to rest the garlic in the pocket of your outer ear – like a hearing aid. DO NOT PUT THE GARLIC CLOVE INTO THE EAR CANAL. If raw garlic causes a burning sensation, simply coat the side that will come in contact with the ear with olive oil.
Usually pain subsides within the hour, but it can take up to 4 hours.
