Welcome in H.C.M. for query.
I have gone through your query regarding injury to ear drum followed by diminish hearing and heaviness in ear.
As you have told that you hurt your ear drum of left ear during ear cleaning by ear bud and after taking treatment from your GP you have some hearing problem indicates that your perforation is still persisting. I advice you to consult ENT specialist for clinically examining the ear and do Audiometeric testing to access the hearing.
usually these type of traumatic perforation of ear drum heal by conservative treatment. But you have passed about one month therefore it might be possible to do some surgical intervention. but if you leave this hole untreated than you may land on some complication like chronic otitis media.

With Regards.
