Hello and welcome to HCM
Ear pain, stuffy pain and sore throat
The three structures ear, nose and throat are interconnected so infection of one structure can spread to the other structure.
The presence of ear discharge
and crusting indicates ear infection
and discharge coming out from the ear.
You definitely need to visit your ENT specialist
for clinical examination and investigation.
A course of antibiotics may be needed and repositioning of the ear tubes may needed.
Thanks and take care
