The old mothers used to put onions on the baby’s ear when it had earache. That is not surprising, when we see all the pains and aches belonging to this remedy (Allium Cepa).
Jerking pains from the throat toward the Eustachian tube. Violent earache, even to the discharge of pus from the ear. Ringing in the ears. stitches towards the ear from the forehead. Pain like thick threads drawing from deep within the head. Stitching, tearing pains in the ear, with whooping cough, with coryza, with laryngitis.
In the household where a medicine case is kept Puls. is the standard remedy for earache, and it is true that only occasionally has a doctor to be sent for. Puls. has such a strong affinity for the ear that it will cure earache in almost all sensitive children who cry pitifully.
But those who are snappish, who are never suited, who will throw away something they have asked for and slap the nurse in the face must have Cham.
With Puls., Cham. and All-c. you can cure the majority of earaches in children.
