The middle ear is separated from the outer ear by a membrane called the eardrum or tympanic membrane. Thus, the infection of the middle ear does not cause ear discharge unless the eardrum ruptures. The outer ear canal usually secretes wax; ear discharge commonly consists of excessive wax. In some cases however, it may include blood, pus or fluid in addition to wax.
The type of ear discharge gives a clue of the underlying cause. For example:
A scant white mucus discharge indicates acute external ear infection.
A fungal infection of the external ear results in a fluffy white to off-white discharge. In some cases however, the discharge may be black, gray, bluish-green or yellow.
