What causes soreness in ear?

For the past two weeks my 6 year old daughter has been complaining that when water goes in her ears its sore. She has also said that when she pushes on her outer earlobe it hurts. I took her to the doctor and he said everything looks fine. He gave us covancaine and now when i put it in she says it burns. What could it be ? Should i take her to an ENT for a second opinion ?

Thanks for asking.
I've gone through your question and I understand your concern. your 6 year old daughter is having pain in ear and you visited ENT specialist he said everything is fine and the eye drop which he advised is burning hes ear. One thing you can do is that you can give oral painkiller like Ibuprofen 8 mg per kg per dose , thirce a day for 3 days if she not feel improve , than you consult ENT specialist for second opinion thanks
