Dear susanavasquez0229,

Good afternoon,
Apparantly you have developed infection of Middle ear (Medically called CSOM). You will require a course of antibiotics and other symotomatic drugs. The rupture / perforation of tympanic membrane (Ear Drum) might have resulted in hearing loss.
PLEASE do not wait... and consult an ENT surgeon.
First the infection is to be controlled and later on you may require a small operation (called Tympanoplasty) to restore hearing.
PLEASE do not wait... and consult an ENT surgeon.

Hope this answers your query. If you have further doubts, I will be available to help you.
Wish you good health.

Best regards
