Hello, my 7 year old daughter is battling an ear ache possible ear infection for 3 days. I haven t taken her in because I ve been under the impression that s it s best to allow her to work through it with natural home remedies and save antibiotics as a last resort. she has had a fever come and go and I ve been giving her tylenol and made a garlic infused olive oil mix to use as drops in her ear several times a day. it seems to sooth and help a little but neither remedy has gotten the throbbing to go away. throbbing seems to have moved from her ear to a couple areas on her head around her ear. today is the 4th day. because she was in her jammies and laying around most of yesterday, she didn t brush her teeth. this morning i talked her into letting me because her breath was bad and I knew bacteria in the mouth wouldn t help the situation. i was shocked to find that her tongue was blackish green! some of it brushed off but not all and it seemed to be coming from the back of the tongue. is this a sign of bacteria confirming her ear or sinuses probably has a bacterial infection?

I have a constant thundering in my left ear, this has been going on for around 4 to 6 months now, tonight it is seriously freaking me out and I have tooth pain and ear pain with it which never happened before. I have a piercing on the little nub between the ear and the face I cant remember what that part is called but I lost the ball on the earring and did not find it so I am wondering if this could be caused by an object in my ear or if it could be more serious? It is like a beating or thundering in my ear, not a ringing sound. It does not go along with my own heart beat, it is irregular and cases the feeling of vibration on my face as well.
