If at work then I suggest warm olive oil drizzled slowly into the ear and stuff a cotton ball in the ear so the oil does not ruin my clothing. Do not compress the cotton ball too tightly to further add compression and pain to the ear.
My children's pediatrician always told me that even ear infections usually clear up on their own over time, but we modern families are too impatient and do not like to see our children suffer so we rush to the doctor to get antibiotics.
I hope this helps! Let me know what you doing orders to relieve your earaches.
