To soothe an earache quick, cover your ear with a towel that has been moistened with warm water. The combination of heat and moisture is soothing and the heat will help melt earwax which could be contributing to the congestion.
Another treatment would be to squeeze a clove of garlic and put a few drops in the ear, it will help kill the bacteria that are causing the pain. also up the vitamin c and take some echinacea.

since the warm compress did not work well and i did not have any garlic i tried lemon juice instead and it had amazngly quick results.

Ok your garlic idea worked very very well. But the problem is when I put the drop of garlic juice in my ear. It felt like it was working right away, and as in working, stinging really really badly. Haha but now that the stingings all gone it feels alot better. thanks.

Garlic helped alot!
Instant relief, It really cools the ear down.
The hardest part is getting the juices out!
