Hello Dear
Thanks for your query

I would suggest you to take your baby to an ENT specialist immediately.

May be he has hurt his external auditory canal or more seriously he may have hurt his tympanic membrane which needs attention.
The wound may get infected if not cared of and other secondary complications can occur, so always better to get a medical check up.Don't mess with it yourself or use medicines without doctor's prescription.

Hope this helps.

Update here how your baby stays.

Take care.

You must take him to a doctor and get him examined.
The site of injury can be seen only after proper examination. He might have some problems if tympanic membrane is injured.
Already its 2 days now. Please take him to ENT specialist preferably.
