ENT Specialist 's  Response
ear pain not only is because of problem in ear .
infection in ur throat or sinuses or scalp or temporomandibular joint can lead to ear pain.
u need a ear and throats examination clearly form a ENT surgeon and take treatment accordingly.

Before that do not use any kind of drops or medicines for ur ear pain . they may go useless or may worsen ur pain .
