Warm some olive oil and pour it in your ear, hold it in with a cotton ball for a little while. If the pain is just blockage the oil should help.

Sorry home remedies have never worked for my ear aches. Unfortunatelly I always end up with antiboitics, drops and pain killers to ease the pain.

Hope you feel better soon.
