Ear Oozing: Always consult your doctor if the drainage does not resolve within approximately 3 days or if the ear drainage begins as a result of a head injury or if there is pain.. You should also see a doctor if the drainage is white, yellow, or foul-smelling. See your doctor as you have an infection that needs antibiotics.
