Heat and a decongestant, even if you don't *feel* congested. Oh, and bad television. I think you have to watch at least an hour, though, for it to be effective.
Codeine! And an antibiotic. God, I hate earaches. I'm really prone to them. One time, a taxi driver who was missing a finger told me to hold a wet, heated towel (as hot as I could stand it) against my ear. He also told me to pour in hydrogen peroxide. I didn't do that, but I did the hot towel treatment, and the earache was actually gone the next day. Never worked another time, though.
warm olive oil will help ease the pain a bit, and perhaps some heroin to go on the side?
ibuprofen. it opened my closed swollen throat when i had strep throat over Christmas.
i went straight for antibiotics when i had one about a year ago. oy, the pain...hee, my "wife" isn't a real wife.. just my best friend. people started referring to us like a couple, so we decided to just embrace it and start calling each other wife as a joke.. and it stuck. :-) karl is my actual boyfriend...
