Pain in the ear indicates a problem, one of which could be caused by an infection. In order to understand what is happening to you, it is important to understand a little about the anatomy of the human ear. The ear canal consists of 3 rooms, namely the outer ear, middle ear and inner ear. The outer ear and middle ear are limited by the eardrum, while the inner ear and middle ear are limited by the hearing bones. The middle ear itself is connected to the throat and airways through the eustachian tube. Infection of the middle ear, or infection of the respiratory tract, can cause swelling to the middle ear and cause pain. Not infrequently this infection also produces pus. Picking the ear can injure the eardrum and cause this fluid to leak out of the outer ear. The ongoing inflammation causes the walls of the ear canal to swell and causes a feeling of blockage in the ear.
If the condition has occurred so far, then what you can do now is to have an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist check up directly to confirm the condition of your ears. Do not use ear drops carelessly without a doctor's prescription because some ear medications are not compatible with an ear condition where the eardrum has leaked, and can actually cause nerve damage to the ear. Here we attach an article about ear discharge. May be useful.
