  • Your son has a ruptured ear drum and what's draining is the pus from the middle ear infection. Take him to the doctor right away or he could have scarring and resultant hearing loss if not treated.

  • It is just the fluid that was stuck behind the ear drum draining, But the draining is Good. You would have an ear infection if it didn't drain.
