The Pink Eye was a false alarm. Turns out it was some sort of bacterial thing that caused her eyes to be red and also an ear ache. So just an oral antibiotic should clear it all up. So now I can go back to not washing my hands and rubbing my eyes all the time.
But I wanted to share a little “home remedy” I found online for an earache. It seems there are plenty of things that some people say SHOULD work, but who knows if they really will or not. There are actually a few I’d try. But not sure about this one:
Now, this may be repulsive to many, but I learned this from some back country folks, and it does work. I have tried it on more than one occasion. Tinkle in a cup, and using your own urine, and with the help of a fearless friend, pour it while still warm in the offending ear. Leave it in for three or four minutes, and the ear ache will be gone. I know, it sounds icky, but it truly works.

Now I’m not sure I have a fearless friend who is willing to pour my warm urine into my hurting ear. BUT…four days later this next reply comes:
I would like to confirm what Barbara says about the “tinkling” to cure an earache. While I was working in a factory years ago, a lady told me the same thing. She also said that it had to be the person’s own tinkle. She said she used this method for her children.

Now there is no way I’d be able to convince my 6 year old to pee in a cup, lay down quickly, and let me pour it in her ear!
