Hi welcome to health care magic forum,

Gromet inserted in children for serous ottitis media for ventilation of middle ear.

It usually spontaneously expelled out from ear.

If not expelled spontaneously than it should be removed by the surgeon locally or under anesthesia.

In my opinion ,putting ear drops may cause middle ear infection.

I would suggest you to see an ENT specialist for a detail otoscopic examination.
