Dear customer,

The pain in ear may be the part/sequelae of acute/chronic upper respiratory tract infection.Sometimes the otitis media that is infection of the middle ear is also associated with such symptoms.

The treatment is use of antibiotic drug like augmentin for 7-10 days duration along with otc pain killers like motrin, advil to decrease the pain and inflammation.You have to consult a doctor for these prescription antibiotics.The ear drops containing antibiotics is used in some cases associated with ear discharge.

Let me know if you need any more info.

Thank you!
