I've had an ear infection for a few days, and the discomfort has been bad enough that it's keeping me up at night. I don't want to see a doctor until I've given it at least a week. Any suggestion for comfort measures in the meantime?

Edited to add: I'm pregnant.

Try some warm garlic infused olive oil. Crush a couple cloves of garlic and infuse into 1/4 cup olive oil over a double boiler. It will keep for about a week. Warm it up and place a few drops in the ear about 3 times a day.
