ENT Specialist 's  Response
You should not do this ear popping as this will cause pressure on the ear drum.
and so the ear drum may burst .Secondly you should not clean his ears at home .
It seems that the ear drums are perforated.
You need to take care of the ear drums.
You should not put water or oil inside the ears.
Consult an ent specialist and get examined.
Then you may require antibiotics, decongestant tablet and nasal decongestant drops.
