Weird liquid coming out of ears, smells terrible, itchy, yellow crust forms around inside. Is it something specific ?

My ears have had a weird liquid coming out of them for the past 3 weeks. It usually smelled like normal ear wax but these past couple of days they ve smelled terrible. They get intolerably itchy and if I don t touch them for a while, a light yellow crust forms around the inside and sometimes outside of my ear because of the dried out liquid. I will be going to the doctors tomorrow but what do you think this might be? Is it something specific?

From history it seems that you might be having fungal infection in your ears.
While taking bath, some water enters into the ear canal and remains wet through out the day giving rise to fungal infection.
Put some anti-fungal drops in the ears.
Make a habit to clean the ears with cotton stick after taking bath.
Ok and take care.
