Home remedies to Cure Ear Infections

Ear infections are infections that take place inside or outside the ear. The infections lead to pains in the ear. There is a small tube called Eustachian that joins the ear and the nose. When there is a blockage in this tube the pressure in the ear rises as moisture is not passed from the nose to the ear leading to ear pain. Ear ache is felt more at night than in the day time. A person may feel ear ache due to bacteria or fungal infections or during winters. It is a common ailment among children.
