Im not sure if this is the right place. I went to the dr on Wed. with Sinus/allergy problems. He tested me for strep, it was positive, and gave me med for the strep throat. The conditions have gotten worse and now my ear has started to hurt. While blowing my nose i got a real sharp pain in my right ear and now a little brownish disharge is comming out of my ear and it is continuing to hurt. it feels like there is water or some sort of liquid in it and all noises are muffled and there is a mild pain in my ear. Also my head only hurts when i cough (the top part of my forehead). Do you know what can me causing these problems?

Sounds like you have an ear infection as well. I am sure whatever meds you are on for the strep should take care of that as well. In fact you may be having this because it is clearing up not getting worse. If it is viral however you will have to wait it out and your immune system will have to take care of that. You may want to take a warm cloth to your ear to make it feel better. I once put a heating pad on my ear cause it hurt so bad. Are you taking any kind of allergy meds or decongestant? Anyway, hope you feel better soon.

It could be that the infection has spread from your throat to your ear.

You would need to reconsult with your doctor about this and get a clinical examination done by an ENT specialist.

It would help to rule out any other cause of the ear discharge too.

What medications are you taking currently?

Let us know what your doctor advises and post us about how you are doing.
