Re: ear pain and bad smell
Not to belabor it, but if any doctor looks into your ear with an ototscope, he should be able to determine whether there's a hole in the eardurm. If so, then the middle ear must be treated (carefully under medical supervision).
If NOT, however, then just frequent flushing and maybe some antibiotic or antifungal drops and even shampoo daily should do the trick safely since it's only an outer ear problem.
Finding out if that eardrum is punctured is on top of your agenda.
