Dear Cindy
Your daughter needs an examination of the ear by your GP to establish the possible causes of this problem. One needs to eshtablish the status of her earcanal and eardrum before one can make any suggestions. Depending on what your GP finds, he/she may need to refer you for an ENT opinion regarding future treatment. Possibilities range from eardrum problems to recurrent causes of external ear infections. the management is different in each case.
