Hi,
It appears that due to infection in external ear abscess is formed and now it burs ted open.
Now as pus is removed you will get relief from pain.
Clear ear with cotton plug stick and put some antibiotic drops.
Continue with antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicines.
Ok and take care.

Homeopath Dr. C. J. Varghese's  Response
Hello friend,
Allow the pus to get drained out. Let the nature do its duty. Do not disturb it by antibiotic or pain killers which are more harmful.
Wait for a reasonable time to get the drain reduced to the minimum level and to get the pain subside within a reasonable time period.
If not getting better by one or two days time, then you should approach an expert Homoeopath who will give you remedies to improve your immunity and to cure your ear problem.
Otitis externa will not cause this type of pus and it was otitis media and it should get well once the pus is fully voided.
Homoeopathic treatment can cure the present attack of otitits media and can prevent further attacks in future. Homoeopathy improves your immunity and will protect you from getting similar attacks in future.
With Best wishes,
Dr C. J. Varghese
