i have had outer ear infections at least once over the two months for the past 2 years. i noticed over the last five years my ears have discharged a clear fluid that crusts the outer part of my ear canal then the ear infections started. i think it's because of my use of q-tips but when i recently got over my last ear infection, noticed around the same time i got this "sore" in the inner wall of my nostril. it's red and looks like a bump. if i press on it it flattens out then reappears. it looks raw and feels like a canker sore. i was wondering what that could be and does it have anything to do with the ear infections.

Have you been checked for yeast? It is very possible that the sore in your nose is yeast related and it could be the same for your ear.
