Needs evaluation: Puss from the ear can be either a canal or a middle ear infection. Treatment would differ depending on actual source of the pus. It could also reflect a hole in your ear drum with puss coming through the hole, which in an adult is a prolonged treatment problem. It is time to schedule a visit & have this sorted out.

Couple thots: You may be experiencing pain primarily within the temporomandibular joint (tmj syndrome), that is referred to the ear. A dental eval may help to confirm. A rare condition called "nervous intermedius neuralgia" typically causes intense pain lasting several minutes to hours, and can be confirmed if loss of taste on the same side. An ENT doc may help with this. Mastoid problems may be considered.
