More than likely: CSF discharge from the ear is very unusual, unless you had trauma resulting in fracture of the skull. If treatment of infection does not resolve it, you may wish to see an ENT surgeon. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Best to see MD: The ear is actually a closed system. The outer ear can't get to the middle ear due to the tympanic membrane. If there is discharge, either there is an infection , and a bad one in the canal causing it, but more likely an infected middle ear with perforation of the tympanic membrane causing fluid to go through. It is best to be examined and treated right. ...Read more

Infection, trauma, structural growths of different kinds can all result in eardrum perforation.
