Your eardrum may heal over the next two weeks. Keep your ear dry and avoid introducing any infection. Keep a regular follow up with your doctor, preferably an Ear Specialist (ENT). Do you have any decreased hearing after this incident?

hi mukesh
if the size of perforation is small, then it will spontaneously heal, NO ear drops to be instilled,
if you catch cold then visit an ENT surgeon immediately,
healing depends on size of perforation can take anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks,
visit ENT surgeon after 6 weeks for confirmation of healing
