The most common cause of earache is infection of the middle ear ( otitis media). Most ear infections will resolve on their own. Occasionally antibiotics are prescribed to treat the infection. Acupressure speeds up recovery as well as relieves symptoms of earache. Sit comfortably or lie down, close your eyes and breath deeply when massaging the active points.
