Thank you for your question.
Have you recently had any cold or sore throat?
Please let me know.
Sorry for the late response.
I think that the possibility of wax in the ear should be considered in your case. This can be done by a simple examination at your doctor's office.
Another possibility is that your eustachian tube may be blocked.
This tube connects the ear to the throat and can be blocked if there is some inflammation of the throat, which in-turn can lead to earache and ear discharge.
Decongestants like sudafed which is available over-the-counter may help with your symptoms, which is what I would recommend.
If your symptoms persist I would recommend that you be seen by an ENT doctor to have your ears examined.
Let me know if you have more questions.
