Small child, red spots on right ear, face, discharge, thick yellow crust, liquid. Cure?

My 11month old son had broken out in red spots all over his right ear and side of the face. When he sleeps the spots pop and leave a thick yellow crust inside his ear and on the ear lobe. The rash is now gone but he is still getting a thick smelly yellow luquid that is not wax inside his ear and is scabing up inside the ear. What is this!

Pediatrician 's  Response

It might be impetigo that is a bacterial infection of skin.
Antibacterial ointments like mupirocin can be applied.
If its deep inside the ear or the lesions are spreading its better to see your pediatrician.
Hope my answer helps you.
