Brief Answer:
Ibuprofen best for ear aches

Detailed Answer:

Since you are looking for instant relief for ear aches I would suggest to take ibuprofen 400mg three times a day for relief.
Ideally we need to understand the nature of pain what factors it and treat it accordingly.
Almost all medications are prescription based except ibuprofen ( over the counter) .
Let me know if we need better' discussion on the cause and how to approach it.
