Doctor knows best: A hot water bottle or heating pad, but a better idea is to see your doctor what's causing your problem.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin: You can take Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) until you are able to see a doctor- someone should look in the ear before you put any drops in the ear. You need to make sure that you don't have a ruptured ear drum that can be worsened by putting " sweet oil" or other ear drops in the ear.
