my ear has been aching since morning today and its probably due to the cold ive had for the past week and ive looked up on different health websites such as nhs (uk) and it says that for the first day or two just take painkillers every 4-5 hours like paracetamol or ibruprofen )dont give children under the age of 16 aspirin) to relieve the pain. it also stated that keeping a hot flannel against the ear helps reduce pain too - im using ahot water bottle (in a cover ofcourse) at the moment and it really helps. be careful as it is hot. check your country's health organisation website - (eg the NHS in the uk) you can check your symptoms and if it can be treated at home .
