welcome to HealthcareMagic
The holes in ear drum are probably due to infection of the ear called otitis media .If can be a fungal infection or also happens after viral fever cold and cough.Normally the perforation heals on treatment but in some cases Tympanoplasty may be required for which the better advice will be from the ENT you are getting treatment from.As for having cold things if you are allergic to them please don't have them and if you had perforation due to fungal infection and not allergic to cold then you may have it but keeping in mind the ongoing treatment it will be better if you keep away from cold drinks and ice-cream.

I recently contracted a fungus on my hands, probably related to the Athlete s foot I recently treated on my left foot. In a period of 1 week after treatment was completed I noticed the rash on my hands and the symptoms have steadily worsened. It s across the tops of both hands and severe flareups between ring and middle fingers on both hands. Recently my lips have started to dry and chafe up, but my doctor seems to think it s unrelated. My question is, would he oral anti-fungal be the best option if it has spread this far?
for the last 25 years I have had very congestion skin with very lumpy and pus filled white cheese smelling contents . it sounds disgusting and getting the stuff out of my skin which was on a daily basis before I stopped bothering until it itches and I squeeze it out in large amount.

Hi! I have to get my wife treated for a hole in the ear drum. Probably she has to go for tympanoplasty. But I would prefer her to go for Endoscopic tympanoplasty. Please suggest me the best doctor for this operation in Delhi. Cost of operation should be reasonable.
My son just had a tympanoplasty last Friday. He went to an amusement park today and reported that he rode a rollercoster and felt a pop in his ear that he had the surgery in and now he hears like he is in a barrel. Does it sound like he has ruptured the eardrum again?
My 3-year-old daughter has a tympanoplasty scheduled in 2 weeks. She had tubes at 9 months. The right tube was taken out and later burst during an infection. The hole never healed. Her left tube remains and will be taken out and patched as well. I m nervous; is this common for the holes to not heal properly? Is there anything to be worried about?

Hi, Hope you re well. I recently had two of my three middle ear bones removed when I had choleastetoma removed. The third bone (the stapes) is in tact and in my ear. So I can confirm that I have conductive hearing loss but not any sensorineural...
