Well from what you are describing there are a few conditions which can cause this sort of pain in the ear lobe. The ear lobe is supplied by the greater auricular nerve so it is possible that there is a local condition which is irritating the nerve and thus causing the pain. The most likely scenario here would be due to an infection in the ear lobe itself or even in the region around it. Infact in infections of the neck and teh ear canal, pain can be felt in the ear lobe. In many patients with ear infections, pain is referred to the outside due to both regions sharing a nerve supply. This would also cause fever, ear discharge or even issue slike dizziness etc. The diagnosis can be made with the help of a simple clinical examination and then would be treated with antibiotics. In the meantime simple OTC painkillers like motrin and aleve can be helpful.
if you have any ear piercings it is possible that the pain is due to the piercing being infected or even the piercing irritating the nerve.
Another less common cause of pain in this region can be due to a problem with the cranial nerves, which are the nerves which arise from the brain directly and supply a majority of face. It is possible that you could have a condition which is termed as trigeminal neuralgia especially if there is accompanying pain in the face or over the temple. This would again be diagnosed on a clinical examination and then treated with various medications like carbamezapine.
Now i would suggest that you start using OTC motrin and aleve and schedule an appointment to see your doctor, it is likely to be an infection or even localized damage to the nerve supplying the ear lobe.
