OK Mary. If you're having continuous draining from the ear now there's one of two things going on, and perhaps both.
One would be an external ear canal infection even if there's no pain.
The other, and more likely here, is that you've perforated your ear drum. If that's the case, those usually heal in time but an infection is a real risk so long as there's a hole in the ear drum.
My strong suggestion is to have your doctor take a look in your ear to see if you might need some antibiotic ear drops for now.
Let me know if you need any more information about this.
