Hello Yoviana, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The pain you feel on the right face near the ear can be caused by several possibilities, including:

impacted wisdom teeth (if your wisdom teeth have not yet grown)
cavities infection
TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), which is a disorder of the joints between the upper and lower jaw
infection of the outer ear (otitis externa) or infection of the middle ear (otitis media)

parotitis (inflammation of the parotid gland)
inflammation of the tonsils / tonsils (tonsillitis)
peritonsillar abscess or parafaryngeal abscess (presence of pus-filled pockets around the tonsils or pharyngeal area)
tumors in the nasopharyngeal area


To be able to know for sure the cause of your symptoms, it is necessary to directly examine the area of ​​your mouth and teeth, throat, ears, and neck. Therefore, it's a good idea to check with a general practitioner or ENT doctor.


For now, some of the things you can do include:

If there is pain in the ear canal, do not dig your ear further, you can compress the outer ear with a warm compress
If the pain is more pronounced in the jaw, you can compress the painful area with a cold compress (if you notice swelling) or a warm compress.
You can also take painkillers such as paracetamol to help relieve the pain you are currently feeling.


So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
