Hi and thanks for the query,
Your son is suffering from ear infection
Tubes placed in his ears 7 years ago may have fallen many years ago.
Tubes are probably not to be blamed.
He definitely needs to visit the doctor.
If the discahrge has persisted for more than 5 days then he will require appropriate antibiotics and local ear drops. He may alsio require decongestant nose drops.
Do not ignore persistent ear discharge
. It can produce permanent perforation of the drum and hearing loss
Regards, Dr Kishori.
