Consider allergies: You may have an ear infection, but sometimes there may be referred pain associated with allergic rhinitis and post nasal drip. Try an over the counter antihistamine, while waiting to see your PCP. Avoid getting water in the ear canal. Ibuprofen and a warm compress may be used to treat pain.
