thank you for your query.
your child has an infection of the ear which is causing the drainage from a ruptured eardrum or through a ventilation tube.

i would suggest you to start anti-biotics after referencing with an ENT specialist.
as for the fever,you can give your child Meftal-P will decrease the temperature immediately.

continue tepid sponging and calpal..

the symptoms should subside in 5 days time.

thank you,
wishing you good health.
