Sorry for the delay, but your question only appeared now on my profile.  It bothers me that your ear is still discharging even though you are receiving treatment.  Feel free to ask the ENT what can be the cause of this.  Please do not throw anything in your ear unless prescribed by an ENT.  You can visit the audiology department of the hospital of even the university audiology department (which is on the same floor).  You can get a hearing aid BUT only if your ear remains dry.  Discharge is bad for electronics in an aid.
