In brief: Need ears checked

If your ear hurts when touched it is probably an otitis extern, or infection of the ear canal.
If not, you probably have a middle ear infection. Either way, an ear ache lasting this long must be evaluated by your doctor. You may need treatment.

In brief: Get your ear checked

typically there is an infection in either the ear or in the TM joint.
Your PCP can rule out infection in the ear, and your dentist can rule out the TM joint.
