Fluid coming out of baby ear

Hi Doc,
A week ago i wrote about clear fluid coming out of my 11 months old boy. He has grommets in his ears. He is not in pain but i''m now concerned because the fluid has changed color to yellow-greenish.

I use the Cilodex drops. Since i wrote to you, the fluid stopped and started again 3 days later, i cleaned the ear and used the drops again. It stopped and then the brownish ear dirt came out, nothing for days until today when the yellow-greenish fluid came out.
I have scheduled an appointment on tuesday with ENT but i''m not sure if waiting till then will cause harm.
Please advise
Thank you Doc

p.s. the last you you advised that flying might have triggered this.

You are seeing the ENT surgeon in a short while and your son's ear should not come to any harm if your wait until Tuesday.
