Ear infection: You most likely have chronic otitis media, which is a chronic middle ear infection. You need to see an otolaryngology professional and obtain a hearing test and a ct scan. You may need surgery. At the least, you will need to be on dry ear precautions. Antibiotic ear drops and antibiotics and steroids by mouth are also used.
