i have an embarrassing complain, my ears keep leaking after i have laid down for quite some time like overnight and when i get up it drips onto my night clothers. i am partly deaf wearing a hearing aid in the left ear, which is apparently where the leakage/discharge is comming from, it is also very itch and each time i take my hearing aid out it is always moist and i feel crusting of the skin just inside the ear and around the entrance to the ear, I keep washing it out and keeping it clean and dry over the last week but it has made no difference. my hearing aid is only five months old so fairly new and suddenly im getting this horrible foul smelling yellowish/clear discharge constantly coming out of my ear especially after being in bed laying down alnight and as i explained it comes pouring out and drips on my night clothes and have to rush to ge some tissues. I am disabled and housebound and find it difficult to get to my local GP with no help, do you think they would do a home visit for this situation? i have other medical problems kidney failure stage 5 and due for dialysis in about a month and a half as they are preparing a fistula by 2 stage procedure as the surgeons cant fit it in the usual place due to very small veins. i also have osteomalacia and nephrocalcinosis, kidney stone disease, i mentioned these just in case they could be related who knows. i would be grateful for some advise, either from someone with similar experience or a professional. Thank you
