I had an ear ache, so I put baby oil in it. Now I can't get the oil out?

In brief: Irrigation
The oil may have solidified and is attached to either the ear canal skin or even the ear drum. Try 3% hydrogen peroxide, 4 times a day (dropper full) for a week.
If that does not help see an ENT doctor for proper and safe removal by either microscopic removal or simple irrigation of warm water.
