Have greenish smelly puss coming from my ear. What is causing this?

Hi I have greenish smelly puss coming from my ear. What can be causing that? I was very dizzy a couple months ago and went to the emergency room and the dr did a ctscan and found a mass of infection in the tissue behind my ear drum. I have taken 4 oral antibiotics and 4 antibiotic ear drops but the ear is still infected, however the dizziness is gone. could the mass be somthing more serious?

what you are telling is suggestive of middle ear infection which has not gone completely.since pus is coming eventhough there is no dizziness you consult your dr who will prescribe another course of antibiotics.but you should complete the course of treatment even though symptoms subside.
