How can earache be treated despite using alcohol to drain discharge?
No alcohol. Tylenol 1000mg/8hours and Ibuprofen 400mg/8hrs
The most common cause of earache in adults is a viral infection. Antibiotics are not always needed. I recommend a combination of Tylenol and ibuprofen as specified above. If pain persists or fever sets in, then he needs to get the ear examined.
Hope I have answered your query.
