I get a really bad ear infection once in about every 2 years. Antibiotics have never gotten rid of them. I let hydrogen peroxide sit in my ear for about 15 minutes twice a day, and it is usually gone by the second day. Also taking sudephede helps with the pain.

The ear's ability to produce earwax contributes to its natural defense mechanism to eliminate whatever foreign body in the ear. A generation of pus is an indication of ear infection. I'm not sure what is the extent of that itch friend but scratching can do more harm than good. The cotton buds that we used to clean the inner ear is usually a culprit rather than what we think "helpful". Have it checked for proper irrigation and medication. If your EENT will give you antibiotics, make sure that you will complete the prescribed dose and days you have to take it to avoid antibiotic resistance. The ear is a sensitive area so ask the professional how to further care.
