Pain in the inner ear

I have a constant pain in my inner right ear and the adjoining portion of my jaw... It started without any physical injury though I have broken a nail in my foot....the pain hasnt receded for 3-4 days and is almost like a tooth ache kind of pain. Is it an infection or something more serious. What should I do?

Hi, it could be due to impacted ear wax.
However any infectious cause should also be ruled out.
Kindly consult Ent surgeon for further evaluation and treatment...
