Hello,
The perforation in your eardrum indicates infection of the middle ear.
Keep your ears dry; in many cases if the perforation is small, it heals with time.
Avoid exposure to cold.
Eardrum perforation causes hearing loss and buzzing sound in the ear(called tinnitus).
Consult an ENT Specialist. He will get an X-Ray of mastoid and routine blood tests done.
If the bony part of your ear's normal, it will soon gets resolved.
If its infected, he/she'll start treatment.
And don't you worry, it gets cured.
Take care.

Hi

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
If the holes in the eardrum is due to a trauma, it will usually heal by itself until any infection intervenes the healing process. The noise in the ear is because of flow of the air into the middle ear through the perforation. Avoid water getting into the ear and consult your doctor immediately if you get flu.

I had a qtip in my ear and left it there while I brushed my hair really quick. I accidentally hit the qtip and it pushed in my ear hard. I felt it in my throat and ear. There is blood and it sounds like I have water in my ears. It hurts when I take a shower and get water in my ear. This happened yesterday and now I m wondering if I should go see a doctor or just wait or it to heal.
