Ear pain, discharge of clear and sticky substance. What could it be?

My left ear has been hurting for a few weeks now. I didn t think much of it until some clear sticky stuff began coming out of it when I stuck my finger in my ear. About a week ago I started getting random moments where I could not hear perfectly anymore, or as perfect as I could before at least.Then this morning I woke up feeling like this and it hasn t gone away. My ear still hurts. What could it be?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
your problem seems to be ASOM, i.e., acute suppurative otitis media; it is infection of your middle ear with a perforation in the eardrum.
Keep your ear dry.
Consult an ENT Specialist.
You need an antibiotic, decongestant and some antiinflammatory.
It will solve your problem.
Don't you worry.
Take care.
