i injured my right ear using a cotton bud and was prescribed drops which cleared up the problem but then i developed a prob with
my left ear. i have never had ear probs before but now have constant infections in my left ear. they are as you
describe, itchy, sore, dry then leaking fluid. my doc has prescribed antibiotics every time, and although the ear clears it comes straight back again within a few days. it gets very uncomfortable and my ear swells and is painful.
