In brief: Ear infection

You can try using children's advil (ibuprofen) for the pain.
If it is not improving or having a fever or other symptoms, please see your pcp or urgent care.

Some will resolve spontaneously.
For those that do not in a few days, antibiotics are necessary.There is a current study demonstrating that the symptoms of ear infections , such as pain, improve with proper antibiotics.
