Also remember that dripping garlic oil gently into the ear canal has helped to treat fungal infections as well as or better than pharmaceutical drugs.
Taken internally, garlic can help cure a middle ear infection. If you have ear ache, add more garlic to your cooking. You might also try putting a few drops of garlic oil in the painful ear. From: The Green Pharmacy, James A. Duke.
