Rub some peroxide or 'rubbing alcohol' on it for about 3 days.

This is an indication that you had a minor injury on your ear. The fact that it was leaking oily waxy pus, it is an indication that there is an infection that requires medical attention. You could have gotten and injury from an outside object that entered the ear of you could have injured yourself while cleaning and hence the infection.
