If you really have a blue ear, and it requires strong analgesics! Have you seen a doctor? If not, it's time to.
It could be acrocyanosis, which is not dangerous but annoying. It usually affects other areas as well. Make sure nothing is putting pressure on the ear and that you don't stay in the cold. It might help to get some warming earmuffs and use those little hunting heating pads inside. ...Read more

Get checked!: Severe ear pain is not normal. You could have an infection. Pain to touch often means an infection of the external canal, but not always. Treatment is needed. Remember put no Q-tips, bobby pains, paper clips etc The only thing that you should put in your ear is your elbow or a piano! (An old and honorable and trusty medical truism.)

For starters, you could try massaging your jaw couple of times a day; it might help. Also, warm compresses for 10-15 minutes should help too. ...Read more
