NO

Put nothing in the ear of anyone unless it has been evaluated & is art of the treatment. A heat source to lay on & ibuprofen can soften the pain until the kid is evaluated.

I had an ear ache, so I put baby oil in it. Now I can't get the oil out?

Irrigation

Baby
The oil may have solidified and is attached to either the ear canal skin or even the ear drum. Try 3% hydrogen peroxide, 4 times a day (dropper full) for a week. If that does not help see an ENT doctor for proper and safe removal by either microscopic removal or simple irrigation of warm water.

how to treat an earache?

Depends

Ear_pain
Many ear aches are caused by viruses or simply physical trauma (such as a lot of forceful coughing) while others are caused by bacteria. We sometimes treat ear aches with antibiotics if they're caused by bacteria. In other cases, treating the symptoms and giving your body a chance to heal on its on is sufficient.

atypical chronic earache?

Ear vs jaw

Head-jaw
Do you have a history of ear infections or ear surgery? You may have eustachian tube dysfunction which would cause a retraction of your eardrum and pain. Finally there is some chronic ear pain caused in patients who have TMJ, or inflammation of the jaw joint. You should see an ENT for this first to rule out the ear problems first

Can anxiety cause earache?

I have never seen it

Ear_nose_and_throat
Anxiety can cause a lot of things, but earache would be unlikely. See your family doctor or an ENT doctor to establish a diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

My ears hurt. Not earache?

Possible TMJ

Pain
An ear infection usually follows a cold and has hearing loss, sometimes fever and drainage. It can affect one or both ears. The exam is abnormal. If both ears hurt and exam is normal consider TMJ problem from chewing muscles being tight or infection behind palate. Hearing is normal but ears might feel full.
