Here are a some things you can do on your own.
Ear Massage Technique
This massage technique is to aid the inner ear and to help clear the Eustachian tubes. The massage process should be done gently and firmly-not to the point of pain. If the child shows signs of pain, reduce pressure. The following three steps should be done twice daily on both ears.
1.Using gentle finger pressure, draw a line from the back of the ear near the mastoid bone through the saliva gland just at the rear of the jaw bone. Do this 40 times on both sides.
2.Gently push the flap of skin in front of the ear (tragus) back over the ear canal until it blocks. Release and repeat in a pumping action; this creates a suction in the ear. Pump about 40 times.
3.Place the fleshy part of the palm (just below the thumb) over the ear and rotate the ear in all directions, gently working the cartilage all around. Use a pumping action to work the air out of the ear. Pump 30 to 40 times.
