It may take a little more effort to locate an earache home remedy when you’re on the road. Of course, you may also be on a plane or a ship. The point is that an earache isn’t necessarily going to occur only when you’re at home and your medicine cabinet is readily available. You may have to put some work into locating an earache remedy while traveling if you haven’t planned ahead for the possibility.
Some earache remedies involve food ingredients, which you will probably want to avoid packing. Others involve ingredients that you may have packed for another purpose, such as mouthwash and cotton balls. Ideally, you are traveling to visit a friend or family member. In that situation, you can simply raid their pantry and/or medicine cabinet to find the necessary ingredients.
Worst case scenario here, they know where the nearest store is and can take you to pick up what you need. If you are traveling with a child who is grouchy because he is sick, you will be glad to easily cure what ails him. Even if you are not visiting someone but are traveling in the same country, you should find it fairly easy to locate what you need. You can ask the staff at the hotel or use the handy dandy GPS to locate a pharmacy or grocery store.
Traveling to a foreign county makes this situation a lot more interesting. With luck, you either speak enough of the language to communicate or you find someone who speaks your language. A lot of times, hotel staff is your best bet with this as well. If you know nothing of the language and can’t find someone to translate, well, you’re not in Kansas anymore. Being sick or dealing with a child who is sick in a foreign country will make for a very memorable vacation.
Find the nearest pharmacy or grocery store and go on a treasure hunt. Brand names are often universal, so even if the instructions are unrecognizable, the product should look familiar. As a last resort, you can seek out a doctor or hospital. Sign language should help you out here. You may not understand exactly what the question is, but if you point at your ear and grimace, they should get the idea. This might work with the pharmacist as well.
Other situations, such as being on a plane or ship have their own circumstances. Both place heavy restrictions on what can be brought on board. Chewing gum on a plane will help to work out the pressure built up in your ears. It may not be feasible to use some remedies in these settings, but a small bottle of ear drops and some ibuprofen or acetaminophen may do the trick. When you are going to be traveling, know what ingredients for an earache home remedy you can take with you and don’t forget to pack them.
