Dear Puja,
Because most perforated eardrum injuries heal on their own within two months, treatment may include analgesics to alleviate pain and antibiotics to prevent infection. You have to to keep the ear clean and dry while healing.
Some large holes or non-healing small holes require surgery. An ear, nose, and throat specialist (ENT, otolaryngologist) may graft or patch the eardrum with paper, fat, muscle, or other material.
These materials act as a bridge, allowing the tympanic membrane to grow together. Surgery needed in very few rare cases.
So dont worry and hope for the best.
