In brief: Treat the cause
Treatment to resolve ear pain depends on the cause.
If it is directly related to the ear, as with an external or middle ear infection, then a topical and/or oral antibiotic or anti-fungal is needed. Infection or inflammation in the throat, molars or base of tongue region can present with ear pain. See your primary doctor or ENT specialist.

In brief: Depends on cause.
You need to find out the cause.
Ear pain can be due to ear problems, or non ear problems. See an ENT doc for exam/treatment.

In brief: Pain Assessment
Persistent ear pain can be caused by a number of conditions which usually respond to appropriate treatment.
Firstly an ear infection needs to be evaluated by an appropriately trained provider. Otherwise it will require specialty evaluation by a pain medicine or an ear nose and throat physician.
