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.

Hi, I have been suffering from ear discharge from more than 10 years. i had been to few doctors but they only gave some anti fungal ear drops. I stopped going to them since i was quite busy and the ear problem was not painful. A smelly sticky pus comes out of my ear. I get an itching sensastion and generally i roll a piece of paper and make it like pipe and clean my ears. I gives a wonderful feeling, but the pus coming out is very sticky, and smelly. earlier it used to stop but now its regular.. i also feel my right ear is heavy, and sometimes it feels like there are fluids filled in my ears and they make a peculiar sound as if they are being vortexed or swirling inside. I was 12 years when i started having this problem, now i am a grown up 24 years old.i had a tonsil problem during my childhood days, and i was given homeopathic medicines. I had a problem of bad breath also. Doctors said that it was due to tonsils. Now i don t get tonsils pain but bad breath is till there.

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.
