I've used proxide, earwax remove. also an ear wax removal with proxide in it. I no longer have breast milk juice. and the only thing i have in my house is olive oil. so, that's my only hope. It feels like its closing up to the point i cant stick a q-tip in my ear so i been putting  the ear wax drops and cotton to close the area. It helps a little. I'm going to trying reg olive oil and pray it works,greensad.gif because i love to swim,joy.gif and no its not caused by that. The day i went to go swimming , it was hurting.

You could soak a piece of garlic in the olive oil in order to give it some antimicrobial properties.

I've treated dd's earaches with drops of tea tree/lavender essential oil - I added them to a bit of water and used a dropper.  I've heard the garlic works also.
