ENT Specialist 's  Response
I have gone through your query.
You should consult the ENT specialist because it is suggestive of the ear drum perforation.

I personally advised to prevent putting ear bud, water and oil in the ear.

Go for pure tone audiometry and X ray mastoid for better diagnosis and management.

If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query.

Wish you good health
