Hi thanks for your question.
Pharyngitis,tonsillitis and enlarged adenoids give rise to middle ear infection, leading to perforation of ear drum.
It is better for you to get adenoids of your child removed, that will protect him from frequent throat infection and will also help in healing of ear drum.
Hope this answer your question
