Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
The drainage from the ear suggests that you have a tympanic membrane perforation. It is probably due to eustachian tube blockage caused by nasal congestion.
You should take an oral decongestant like a combination of levocetrizine plus phenylepherine twice daily along with antibiotics ear drops.
put nasal decongestant drops. This will help to dry the ear faster.
Keep the ear dry and plug with cotton while you take a bath.
Get a pure tone audiometry done after the ear gets dry.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available only on prescription.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Thanks and regards
