Yellow ear discharge and bleeding from ear, is this signs of a yeast infection?

Unlikely the issue

Bleeding
Yellow pus is usually a sign of a bacterial process, not one caused by fungi.Bleeding is a non specific sign of irritation and inflammation by any agent.

While taking antibiotics with a middle ear infection. The yellow discharge from my ear has afoul smell. Smells like a 3 day band aid over a wound.

See your doctor

Antibiotic
If you have foul discharge from your ear, you either have had a middle ear infection that has ruptured your eardrum or you have an external ear infection. Either way, you need an ear exam and probable eardrops in addition to your oral antibiotics.

Dr. Dale Tylor answered:

My 9 year old has 2 perforated eardrums, had a cold for approx 4 weeks. Lots of yellow discharge coming from both ears and he in lot pain?

See an ENT

Pain
He needs to be evaluated. Chronic drainage in a setting of perforations of longer duration can be indicative of other problems like cholesteatoma. And it is not normal to have ear drum ruptures on each side with an infection if that is what happened. He likely needs drops and potentially oral antibiotics. And potentially surgery later if the perforations don't resolve.

I have yellow smelly liquid in my right ear & a cold. What could this discharge be?

Ear discharge

Ear
There are several possibilities. An infection in the outer ear canal could be the cause, but a cold doesn't usually cause this. For the drainage to be from the middle ear area, it would have to pass through or rupture the tympanic membrane that would be very painful. Colds can be complicated by a middle ear infection. You should call your doctor to be examined so you can receive proper care.

Muffled hearing in one ear, yellow nasal discharge, but no nasal congestion or fever. Help?

Could be fluid

Fever-adult
It could be fluid in your ear combined with a sinusitis. When the nose is congested it can affect the tube that runs from the back of your nose to your ear leading to the formation of fluid. Your primary care doctor should be able to make this diagnosis and often a course of antibiotics can be helpful. An ENT doctor can also take a look and make the diagnosis for you.

Why isnt my antibiotic curing my ear infection? my ear is draining a foul smelling light yellow discharge.

May be wrong med

Otitis_media
Any antibiotic used to treat an ear infection is picked based on speculation (percentages) that it will work. Any and all antibiotics have a possible of 5% or higher failure rate. The germ may just not be killed by the ABX or something may interfere with its absorption from the gut. Either way, a different Abx may do a better job.

Dr. Marc D. Wager answered:

Should child still be in lot pain with ears when has 2 perforated drums? has lots of yellow discharge, 1st nurse said bacterial, 2nd said was viral

Interesting question

Children
USUALLY when someone has a middle ear infection, the pain is caused by pus behind the ear drum, causing the ear drum to bulge. Once the ear drum perforates, there's no bulging or pressure because the pus is draining through the perforation. However, this probably needs treatment with ear drops and/or oral antibiotics. The short answer is: this patient needs to see a doctor and get treatment!

Most likely it's an infection of your ear canal requiring antibiotic drops and cleaning. You need to see an ENT doctor for treatment.

4 weeks of symptoms . Should I get an antibiotic ? I have no fever ! Persistent sinus pressure, ear pain, yellow thick nasal discharge, sore throat.

See your doctor

Sinus_infections
Your symptoms of sinusitis with yellow discharge, and sore throat means you need to see your doctor, before this goes any further. S/he can prescribe or advise you better after a physical exam whether antibiotics are warranted or not. Most importantly, you want relief from the sinus pressure from all the mucus draining.
