My right ear seems to be infected or maybe worse. It s been like this for 3 years. A yellowish thick sometimes really watered comes out of my ear hen I clean it. And it s there s a really bad odour. I m unsure of what this is. I went to my gp last year to find out what it was and she said it was an ear infection but I think it s worse. Will I need surgery? I would prefer not too. And also today I have a really bad ear ache.
