I think he is suffering from chronic otitis media. Symptoms reccur after catching cold. He may have a small perforation in his tympanic membrane but must be confirmed by otological examination. He may need antibiotic ear dps. It heals with passage of time. Precations sud be taken to save him from frequent cold. Keep his ear dry and not allow water to go into his ears while bathing. Medication is required if there is active discharge from the ear.
