hello,your ear drum will have a tear,we call this a Traumatic perforation.do not worry this is definitely CURABLE.most of these tears heal by themselves in a few weeks.do not allow water to enter your ears while showering.do not instill ear drops of any kind.do not try to equalize pressure.see an ENT doctor. get well soon.dr praveen.
