Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

How long ago was the surgery that caused the scar?

What was the surgery for?

Is your hearing affected?

Where is the pus draining from? Your ear canal, your ear lobe etc?

Do you have any medical problems or take any medication?
