I was was 🙁
Good evening Neli, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fluid discharge and other complaints experienced by your child can occur due to several possibilities, including:
Middle ear infection
Outer ear infection
Accumulation of earwax
Entry of insects or foreign objects into the ear
Ear fungus infection
The most likely is middle ear infection, because this condition most often has symptoms of discharge from the ear, especially if your child has a history of frequent respiratory infections.
We recommend that you now consult your child with an ENT doctor for further examination. In addition to digging up your child's health history, the doctor will also see the contents of your child's ear canal using special tools. From there it will be discovered whether there are indeed signs of inflammation, fungal infections, dirt buildup, and so forth. The handling that will be given later will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile do not need to worry too much, just clean the liquid that comes out periodically using clean gauze, do not use a cotton bud, do not put water or fingers into the ear. Do not also use ear medicines other than those prescribed by the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
