Fluid Secretion From Behind Ear Lobe
Negative pressure : In order for the ear to work properly air from the outside of the ear drum has to be balanced by air on the inside of the eardrum. In an intact ear drum the only way for air to get into the middle ear space is up the eustachian tube.

Dab up what drains out, and if it gets really pussy looking, bad smelling or lots of pain, may need some antibiotic ear drops in addition. Many docs will just call these in to pharmacy for people with tubes that are draining. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
