Hi 2 weeks ago I had an ear infection that is still being resolve with 3 different antibiotics (ciprodex, and 2 different oral pills). My ear drum also ruptured around the same time and I continue to have some fluid draining from the ear.

hello

yes it is ok to play sports but please avoid water sports and weight lifting /straining as it may delay the healing of your ear drum.

Take care!
