In brief: Depends on the cause

Ear aches can have several causes, including a wax, an external ear infection, a middle ear infection, fluid in the middle ear cavity, or other causes.
Before focusing on what can be done, one must determine the cause. Best to see your doctor to get to the bottom of it.

You can chew a gum,yawn, pinch your nose and then blow your nose to open your eustachian tube.you can take tylenol, decongestants or eardrops .it all depends on what caused the earache.
