Perforated Eardrum Treatment

Treatment for a perforated eardrum depends on the severity of the condition. In many cases, the eardrum will heal on its own within a few weeks or months. However, your doctor may recommend some of the following treatment options:

  1. Antibiotics: If the perforation is caused by an infection, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to prevent further complications.
  2. Ear drops: Ear drops may be prescribed to help prevent infection and promote healing of the eardrum.
  3. Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be required to repair the perforation. This is typically done under general anesthesia and involves grafting tissue onto the eardrum.
  4. Hearing aids: If the perforated eardrum has caused significant hearing loss, a hearing aid may be recommended to improve hearing.

It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have a perforated eardrum, as untreated perforations can lead to infection and other complications. Your doctor can determine the best course of treatment for your specific situation.
