Ear pain, lack of hearing, runny nose, sore throat, blood in ear, discharge from ear. Cause?

I am, now and have been having ear pain in my left ear and am unable to hear much for the past 5 days. Then 2 days ago it transferred to my right ear as well. It sounds like when your ears pop when you go on a flight. I also have a cold , with runny nose , sore throat and a cough . I have a little blood in the right ear, and my left ear is constantly leaking something, what? I don t know, all I know is that it is not any kind of ear wax . The pain in my ears, feels like lots of pressure, as if I were under water, mixed with sort of feeling like there s a pin in there.

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding you nasal discharge, sore throat, ear pain loss of hearing and finaly ear discharge mixed with blood.

Considering your comlaints it is clear that you are suffering from acute upper respiratory tract infection with acute otitis media.

your disease process is as- First of all you have developed running nose and sinusitis which is responsibe for post nasal drip thus your throat get infected and this sore throat gets way to reach to ear via Eustachian tube. In this way acute otitis media developed and you felt pressure and fullness in ear. After that increasing pressure in the ear (middle ear) given you shooting pain and ultimately small perforation developed in ear drum thus infected collection of middle ear came out in your ear canal.

To treat it you can take antibiotic, anti inflammatory, decongestant and steam inhalation. don't use any EAR DROP.
