Why Does The Ear Come Out Smelling Clear Liquid And When Dry It Becomes Crusty?
Alodok, I have a problem with my ears. A clear liquid comes out as well if it smells dry, crusty. When I had experienced it yesterday, when I saw the doctor in the ointment, but I forgot the name, then I used it 3-4 days after it recovered. This is a relapse, why is that? If I may know the right medicine, so what are the relapses? Thank you
