Ear discharge more than few months called chronic ear disease. It requires medication for controlling of ear infection.  It decreases discharge first later perforation will be healed. For healing of perforation ear should be dry.
For non healing perforation,persistant ear discharge requires early surgical intervention is required. Chances of ear complications will be there if it is not addressed properly.
