Ear hurts after planeride

My ear has a slight pain after a recent plane ride. It is just one ear (the right one). Along with the slight pain in the ear, there is also a mild pain on the right side of the head. It has been one day and the pain has been quite consistent, but not too troubling. What can I do do solve this?

It may be due to OME or ASOM. You should consult a good ENT doctor to find out exactly what you are suffering from. The treatment will follow accordingly.
