Hi, surgery is a better option for a central perforation which is persisting in a dry ear as this will close that perforation and many a times (not always) will do away with the humming sound completely or partially. Hearing loss is usually accompanied with a perforation more so with a posteriorly placed perforation. Otherwise as a precaution, please keep ear dry and keep cotton while taking bath and use ear plugs while swimming. Regards
