ENT Specialist 's  Response
The perforation in your eardrum indicates infection of the middle ear.
Keep your ears dry; in many cases if the perforation is small, it heals with time.
Avoid exposure to cold.
Eardrum perforation causes hearing loss and buzzing sound in the ear(called tinnitus).
Consult an ENT Specialist. He will get an X-Ray of mastoid and routine blood tests done.
If the bony part of your ear's normal, it will soon gets resolved.
If its infected, he/she'll start treatment.
And don't you worry, it gets cured.
Take care.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
If the holes in the eardrum is due to a trauma, it will usually heal by itself until any infection intervenes the healing process. The noise in the ear is because of flow of the air into the middle ear through the perforation. Avoid water getting into the ear and consult your doctor immediately if you get flu.
