Hi Abdul Majeed,
Welcome to HCM.
It appears that you have infection in the ear. Since it is of long duration, your membrane may be affected. You should immediately consult an ENT Surgeon who will have to examine your ear to see how serious is the problem. Only after examination can the extent of disease be made out and necessary treatment started. Do not delay. Consult immediately.

I have constant clear liquid coming out of my ear. There is so much it is dripping down my neck . I have itching and slight pain. Last night I had a lot of popping in the ear and I could hear liquid swishing around in there. Today it sounds like everything is under water. I have been using ear plugs to sleep at night because my husband snores. Did I puncture my ear drum? What is all the clear liquid, which btw does not smell.

I ve woken up for several years to my ears aching and having liquid come out out. I haven t thought anything about it but recently it s been happening almost every morning and what side of my head i sleep on depends on which ear hurts and has fluid coming out of it. I m just trying to find out if there is a quick fix for this or if i need to go see a doctor and get medication.
