Depends-: Have your doctor check it out- outer ear: possibly otitis externa, relapsing polychondritis, or a skin infection on on the ear. Treatment can involve ear drops. If treated, pain can go away a fast as min-hrs middle ear: possibly otitis media, and others. This requires antibiotics by mouth and therefore, can take hrs-days. Pills can be selectively prescribed, making pain go away in minutes.
