WELCOME TO HCM.
IT SEEMS U HAVE GOT DAMAGE TO UR EAR DRUM AND IT HAS GOT SECONDARILY INFECTED NOW. WE SHOULD NEVER PUT HYDROGEN PEROXIDE IN EARS SOMETIMES ITSV VERY DANGEROUS. NEED TO SEE AN ENT EXPERT AT THE EARLIEST. HE WILL DO EAR TOILETTING FOR U AND CONFIRM THE DIAGNOSIS AND WILL PRESCRIBE THE MEDICINE ACCORDINGLY.
