Diagnosis: Not all ear aches arise from the middle or external ears. Tmd (jaw muscle spasm) is a notorious cause of pain at the side of the face. The real question you should be asking is not how to get rid of the earache but what is causing the ear ache? See an ear specialist and then your question, hopefully, will be answered.

Depends on cause: Getting rid of an earache involves treating the underlying problem. It can be caused by something in/around the ear or, more commonly, referred from somewhere else. This is commonly from TMJ issues. A persistent earache in someone who uses tobacco is especially worrisome as it could mean a tumor in the throat.
