Interesting topic. My g/f had an earache a few months ago,
and we tried using some remedies from Walgreens. Those didn't
do well, so her mom recommended that we take a newspaper,
make it into a funnel, insert the small part in the ear, and light
up the top part of the funnel and let it burn!

I thought she was crazy! She did it anyway, but it still didn't work.
I found out that my g/f was digging to far into the ear canal
with the swabs, causing the pain. It went away after a couple
of weeks.
