Thanks for writing in.
The burning pain in the ear could either be severe pain that can originate due to an infection in the ear. If you have noticed some kind of discharge from the ear or some hearing loss
. Also, it could be due to a prodrome of herpes zoster
where a burning sensation in a particular region, preceded the appearance of small fluid filled rash. This would be likely if you have suffered from chicken pox
I would suggest you see an ENT specialist
so that an infection can be reasonably ruled out.
Hope this helps.
