Earaches can be painful so getting rid of them and easing the pain are the first courses of action to take. Essentially there's usually a bacterial infection that causes swelling in the inner ear, and this added pressure is what produces the feelings of pain.

Through the years when we've gone to the doctor for earaches, our doctor has always advised us to wait it out and see if it goes away on its own (to avoid antibiotics). Typically that has alway worked, but you need some help along the way to reduce the pain, and hopefully heal it that much quicker.
