My ears hurt so bad with this headcold

My headcold came on today with a vengence. I have body aches real bad and a low fever but my head and ears hurt real bad. I can't get rid of the headache, it makes my ears ring and a feel a shooting pain in both ears. This is so painful. I think it is from the headcold. I don't think I got an ear infection in both that quickly. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Re: My ears hurt so bad with this headcold

If your eardrum is instact, has not been perforated for any reason, you can get some olive oil, warm it up, fill your ear canal and plug with cotton. The oil should be as warm as you can get it and still be comfortable. This is a very simple remedy that has never failed me yet!

Hope that helps.
