Hi thanks for your question.
The symptoms you have described are of otitis media (middle ear infection) White discharge through ear is puss that is comming out from middle ear through a perforation in the ear drum.The perforation in the ear drum is formed by infection of middle ear.Ibuprofen alone will do nothing to ear infection.You need treatment for otitis media which include antibiotics,decongestant and pain killer.
I would suggest you to consult an ENT specialist for treatment of your otitis media.
Hope this answers you question.

General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
You seem to have developed middle ear infection called as OTITIS MEDIA resulting in perforation of ear drum and this perforation of ear drum has resulted in discharge of pus from ear.
Ear drum or tympanic membrane bursts because of build up of purulent material inside and this results in perforation.
Normally such perforations heal of themselves however you must consult a doctor and take a course of antibiotics for 7 to 10 days along with anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen 400 mg here times a day.
There is nothing to worry as this shall heal completely soon.
