Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have an middle ear infection.
Continue Tylenol in prescribed dosage evry 8 th hourly depending on the presence of fever.
You can clean the discharge coming from the ear with a soft cloth at out side of the ear.
Don't allow the water to gi inside while giving the bath.
You can consult your Pediatrician tomorrow as there are no signs of concern for emergency at present.
Hope I have answered your query.
