Dear Shaan

The painfull pimple in his ear canal may be the likely cause of his ear ache (otalgia). He should go back to his ENT surgeon to do a full examination to establish whether of not this is indeed the case. It is unlikely that there is a connection, but only an examination will give you the answer.
