I just bought a pair of Shure SE215 but they hurt (a lot) my very small ears (inside) unfortunately... what do you recommend? (I'd use them for gaming, below 100$)

Another small eared person! I usually go by the size of Comply's they fit (T-100 is the smallest, 200s are uncomfortable for me). Also if the IEM takes Sony hybrid tips - you can buy a pack with different sizes which include a super small (SS) size.
So look around, Deadlovestory already suggested Klipsch's which take the T-100s! Etymotic's have small tips as well. Brainwavz B2s are small too. Jays also make a very small earphone IIRC just for small eared people, but they don't include a mic and remote if you need that.
However, Shure tips are quite small (my SE 535s had the T-100s), so maybe you might want to look at changing the tips and see if that improves comfort first.
Rather than the foamy tips (which tend to be larger so they can be compressed), you might try looking at either Shure or Etymotic multi-flange tips that will allow insertion in smaller ear canals. I use the Ety gray-ish 3-flange tips on my ER4 and they are perfect -- and Ety tips will fit the Shure SE215 nozzle.
