thanks for sending the question.

You might have an infection involving your ear or possibly a sinus infection. This can lead to pain on one side of the face and sometimes jaw pain.

You could try some over-the-counter decongestants to see if this helps. If the symptoms do not improve I would recommend that you visit with your primary care provider for a focused consultation. Your doctor may consider antibiotics to help alleviate your symptoms.

Sincerely,
