Ear problem-Ear drum issue for 15 year old
My 15-year-old daughter accidentally damaged her eardrum with cotton swabs . I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics. I wanted to ask how likely is it that the eardrum will close on its own and for how long? If not then what intervention we can do surgically and what is the success rate for you to return the ear to normal. Thank you
@dakshi perforations in the eardrum will heal on their own, by taking antibiotics. Small perforations of the eardrum usually return to normal within a few weeks, but it can take up to 2 months for the membrane to completely regenerate. If within this 2 month period the membrane does not regenerate completely, surgery, also called. Continue the treatment recommended by the doctor and take your daughter for an evaluation once it is completed.
