Thanks for your query.
Bad smell from right ear of one year old girl child suggest it either be a foreign body super-added with infection or some fungal infection of external ear canal.

It can present without fever ,tender to touch and ( both can be) uncomfortable to the child.

Fungal infection with super-added infection can present as white thing or structure blocking the ear canal.
Her running nose & greenish discharge also suggest infection.

So evaluation from ENT surgeon will be beneficial & is desirable also
