hello there.

your condition is called chronic suppurative otitis media.
CSOM in short. in CSOM, the tympanic membrane or the ear drum is perforated.
CSOM can be of 2 types based on where you have the perforation.
you should get it checked out by a ENT surgeon to find out the type of CSOM because attico-antral type of CSOM is very dangerous.
