My son had a terrible problem with this.  A doctor told me to crush a clove of garlic in a little olive oil, warm it up to about the temperature of a baby bottle, strain out the garlic, put a couple drops in with an eye dropper, & put cotton in the ear.  The garlic helped clear up the infection, and the olive oil soothed the pain.  Still use it 18 years later.

An herbal formula does a good job also by Nature's Sunshine.  Here's a link:
