What causes recurring ear infections?

My husband is on his 3rd ear infection since the end of may. Yellow liquid drainage, red and scabby on the outside of the inner ear, and breaking out with what looks like acne on jaw bone and down onto his neck. He keeps picking at these large bumps, but they are not pimples.

Hello,

It may be due to chronic suppurative otitis media.

For that you may require oral antibiotics after ENT consultation.

You may require discharge culture sensitivity, complete hemogram after consultation.

For pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

Maintain proper hygiene

Hope I have answered your query...
Let me know if I can assist you further.
