Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for posting your query.

A small injury itself can cause damage to ear drum.

I would advice you to visit an ENT specialist and get a thorough clinical evaluation to rule out the chance of occurrence of any damage to ear drum.

Antibiotics has to be administered to relieve infection.

Avoid inserting cotton buds,pins into ear.

Usually the inflammed eardrum heals completely after 2-3 months.

Hope this helps.
