Ear pain, headache, hearing loss, white discharge from ears, crusty patches. Cure?

my 10 year old daughter has been complaining about ear ache, headache and not hearing properly. I know she can still hear cos I have tested her by speaking quietly at some distance away but i do also note that sometimes she doesn t hear what is being saidd to her. Recently a white discharge has been coming out of her ear. In actual fact, we don t see it coming out we just notice white patches on her ear and earlobe which looks like traces of the liquid that has come out of the ear. it doesn t really have much of an odour if any at all. pls can you advice thanks

Hello and welcome to HCM

Ear discharge with ear ache should not ignored.
It signifies some kind of infection in the outer ear or middle ear.
Hearing loss can be assessed by certain tests performed by the ENT specialist.
Visit your ENT specialist at the earliest as the infection can spread beyond the normal confines of the ear.

Thanks and take care
