mean infection or allergies?  It just started this morning.  It doesn't hurt but damn it's disgusting.  I feel like I should put some cotton in there to stop it.  Would allergy medicine dry it up or should i just let it go?

If stuf is coming out of your ear, thra NOT ear wax then you probably have an ear infection.

What color is it? You may have just gotten. Water behind your ear drum from showering/bathing

Anytime I've experienced it, it's been a bad infection. I had infections A LOT when I was younger.

I don't think it is ear wax....and my ear doesn't hurt.  It takes forever to get a doctors appointment on base...  So I guess I will try allergy meds and see if that works.

Mine do that because of my allergies. Something like zyrtec will dry it up. If its green and goopy gross stuff...I am probably wrong and you should see a dr! :)

I had that happen and it was an infection in my ear canal. It was in pain for months before I got it looked at though. It stopped hurting and starting oozing, and since I was taking one of the kids to the Dr I decided to have them look at my ear also. I surprisingly wasn't a bad infection though.

Infection and possibly a ruptured ear drum.
