Thanks for writing to us.

The ear infection can occur infants due to passage of milk,water etc,into ear.

The symptoms usually stops once the inflammation has relieved.

I would suggest you to take precaution like keeping cotton within ear while taking bath etc.

Always keep your child's ears dry.

Hope this helps out.

It seems that she might be having some infection in her external ear causing boil in outer ear, burs ted open and drainage of pus.
Go for antibiotic medicine syrup after consulting your doctor.
continue putting ear drops after cleaning the ear.
Ok and take care.
