4 year old having ear infection with blisters and bulging membrane

My 4 yr old son was diagnosed with an ear infection last week, today I brought him for a follow up and the ear was worse and had blisters and a buldging membrane. He has previously had tubes in (which this ear fell out 2yrs ago), the other ear still has the original tube in 3yrs later.

This condition is called otitis externa (infection of the external ear) with infection of the middle ear also . Your child requires antibiotics, pain killers and local antibiotic application. Avoid water into the ear. Consult a good ENT specialist, any more doubts you are welcome.
