Suggest treatment for ear pain

my 11 year old son has had problems with his ears for most of his life, he has a tube in his right ear that will not come out and when the doctor tried to remove it hurts him. In the left ear his ear drum has been perferated for years now and will not heal. He has allergies and is resently complaining again out a sore throught and ear pain. The doctor has perscribed oflaxin ear drops for his left ear , is it safe to put drops in an ear that is perferated for he is supposed to do 5 drops in his left ear once a day but after 2 drops he screams in pain.
