Hi Sharon,

I'm Dr Chaithanya, exprienced General Physician attending you today.

This typically seens to a ear infection.

Azithromycin works in most of the cases.

But worries me is green discharge from the ears

It is better if an ENT examines the type of discharge and see where is it exactly coming from.

So I suggest to go to an ENT to get examined as soon as possible.
